Kathryn A. (Kate) Morris assumed the presidency of St. Lawrence University on July 1, following the retirement of Bill Fox, who led the university for 12 years. President Morris, the 19th president of St. Lawrence, has dedicated her life to higher education and chose to become a professor because she understood the impact of teaching and mentoring on students’ lives. She arrived at St. Lawrence following a distinguished career at Butler University, where she most recently served as the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs for eight years. Prior to her time as provost, President Morris served as a professor of psychology and was chair of that department at Butler. Her areas of expertise include social psychology, the psychology of gender, methodology, and statistics.
