Robert Earl Edison to serve as Distinguished Visiting Professor at Oklahoma Christian University

A&M-Commerce alum Robert Earl Edison will serve as a distinguished visiting professor of American studies in racial and ethnic diversity at Oklahoma Christian University. “We are truly blessed that an award-winning historian and leader such as Robert Edison will bring his personal and professional experiences with civil rights history to OC’s College of Liberal Arts,” said Dr. Tina Winn of OCU. Edison was one of 18 former OCU students who participated in civil rights history by performing a 1960s sit-in at the school to stand up for students of color. Edison graduated from A&M-Commerce in 1999 with a Master of Science in History.
