William L. Fox '75, a senior administrator at Goucher College in Baltimore, is the new president of Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri.

Fox, who earned his bachelor's degree in history from St. Lawrence, was quoted in the news media as saying he is excited about the opportunity because he is impressed by the faculty’s academic credentials and by the way the faculty, staff and community members welcomed his family during the interview process.

"The faculty is well trained, hard working and creative here," he said. "When we visited the campus, they sent us home feeling like we had already been at home."

Fox will assume his new duties June 15. He has been special assistant to the president at Goucher College since 1999. Fox has also served as Goucher's acting vice president of enrollment management, acting associate dean for graduate and professional programs, acting director of institutional research and director of foundation relations.

He previously taught history at Howard University in Washington, DC, from 1992-99 and at Claremont University from 1988-92. Fox earned the Ph.D. in history and religion from George Washington University and a master of divinity degree from Harvard University. He is also an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, the National Association of Congregational Churches, and the Unitarian Universalist Association.

At St. Lawrence, he participated in the student government organization, was a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity and was elected to the history department honorary society, the leadership honorary and Who's Who Among Students In American Colleges and Universities. Fox has also been active with St. Lawrence as an alumnus, volunteering in admissions, Reunion planning, career planning and fund-raising. In his community, he has worked with the Salvation Army Board, the YMCA Board, the Rotary Club and has been involved in adult-care programs.
