Dr. James W. Cagley was a renowned and beloved faculty member and administrator in the Collins College of Business at The University of Tulsa from 1978 until 2004, serving during those years as a Professor of Marketing, a faculty advisor, and Associate Dean of the College.

Dr. Cagley touched the lives of countless students during his 26 years of work at The University of Tulsa as he assisted them in attaining their educational and professional goals. His extraordinary ability to connect with his students was recognized on several occasions with prestigious awards, including the Collins College of Business Mayo Teaching Excellence Award, the Collins College of Business Innovation in Teaching Award, The University of Tulsa Mortar Board Professor of the Year Award, TU’s Outstanding Teacher Award, the Lewis E. Duncan Advisor of the Year Award, and Mr. Homecoming of 1997.

Dr. Cagley’s former students, friends and colleagues wished to memorialize him after he passed away March 14, 2007, prompting his wife, Lorraine, and his two children, Richard Cagley and Joanne Lown, to encourage memorial gifts to the James W. Cagley Memorial Fund at The University of Tulsa.

The Collins College of Business has chosen to utilize the funds given in memory of Dr. Cagley to support an award for Marketing students at TU, perpetuating his influence on the lives of students.
