Dean Lena Hill in Her Own Words (Video)

October 21, 2018



Editors from the Vigil sat down for an interview with new Dean of the College, Dr. Lena Hill. We discussed a wide range of topics, from her vision for W&L to the controversy surrounding her hiring. This interview was recorded prior to the decision to rename campus buildings was announced, so we asked Dean Hill for a quote regarding the name of the building housing her office, previously called the Lee-Jackson House: “It is an honor to have my office in Simpson House. Pamela Simpson not only helped transform W&L from an all male institution into a coeducational university, she worked to ensure this change was positive. As Professor Simpson mentored women faculty members and students, she insisted W&L live up to our most deeply held values. Working in an office space named for her will daily remind me of the trust I have accepted.”


Take a look above.
