Dr. Donna Hardy Cox has been appointed associate vice-president (academic) students, for a five-year term, effective Jan. 1, 2019.
Dr. Hardy Cox’s social work practice background includes 15 years of service in policy and program development and the administration of student development programs. Her research and scholarship has included extensive focus on student success and higher education.

At the School of Social Work, we are grateful for the dedication and passion Dr. Hardy Cox has brought to her role as dean of the school over the last six years. While we’ll be sad to lose her, we know that Memorial’s student portfolio will be in good hands with her at the helm.
