Dr. William J. Lennox Jr. became the ninth president of Saint Leo University on July 1, 2015. A retired U.S. Army three-star lieutenant general, Lennox earned his bachelor’s degree in international affairs from the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. He went on to earn a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in literature from Princeton University, writing his dissertation on American war poetry. He graduated first in his class at Fort Leavenworth’s Command and General Officer’s School, and he completed the Senior Service College Fellowship at Harvard University. In 2001, Lennox became the superintendent of the United States Military Academy, a role essentially equivalent to president of a civilian college. From 2006 to 2012, Lennox served as senior vice president at Goodrich Corporation, a Fortune 500 aerospace firm, in Washington, DC.
