Comments About President Fox

Best administrator I’ve ever worked with. . . . I’ve never encountered a more gifted academic administrator. . . . She’s a consensus builder.

These were among the comments we heard about Dr. Pamela Fox in our initial Search Committee inquiries. When we actually met with Dr. Fox, I realized that we had met a woman who not only had an exceptionally strong track record as a teacher and scholar in musicology but also was widely recognized as a skillful, collegial, and highly energetic leader. So many individuals noted that Dr. Fox was able to view the big picture: not only advocating for her department or the School of Fine Arts but also energetically working on behalf of the entire university. Apart from the sheer breadth (and obvious success) of her experiences in administration and college leadership, I was struck by her genuine love of the liberal arts and interdisciplinary teaching methods and by her clear understanding of the unique status of a small woman’s college and the key role for academic entrepreneurship and programmatic innovation.

I am very much looking forward to Dr. Fox’s presidency.

Dr. Fox’s career to date has demonstrated strong commitment to the liberal arts and impressive administrative leadership and vision. She understands Mary Baldwin’s many strengths as well as the challenges that face the college. I am confident that the excellent leadership we have seen under Dr. Tyson will continue with Dr. Fox’s presidency.

— Dr. Anne McGovern, Associate Professor of French

Dr. Fox’s warm presence and friendly smile put anyone at ease whether a student or a faculty member. She shows a deep understanding of and appreciation for Mary Baldwin and the mission of educating women while at the same time expressing an ambitious spirit and the wisdom to take Baldwin to the next level.
