Douglas A. Hicks named dean of Emory's Oxford College
Emory University Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Claire E. Sterk announced today that Douglas A. Hicks has been appointed dean of Oxford College of Emory University. Hicks will assume his new role on July 15, 2016. He comes to Emory from Colgate University, where he has served as provost and dean of the faculty and currently is senior adviser for academic initiatives and professor of religion.

Oxford College is located on Emory's original 1836 campus in Oxford, Georgia.  With an emphasis on a residential, liberal arts experience, it offers a distinctive, small-campus setting that allows first- and second-year college students to grow and thrive both academically and personally. The majority of these students continue their Emory undergraduate experience at Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Goizueta Business School, or the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory.

"Doug brings a distinguished career of teaching, collaborative leadership and community building to Oxford College," says Sterk. "With a passion to shape young people as lifelong learners, he is an ideal person to lead Oxford College in reaching its aspirations to graduate students who see the world through a broad lens."
