Biographical Note

Lenox began her career at UMC in 1978 as an Associate Professor in the School of Library and Informational Science. She became the first African-American woman to hold the position of dean at UMC when she assumed the position of Dean of SLIS in 1984. Mary Lenox served as Dean until June 1, 1996, when the independent School of Library and Informational Science was administratively placed under the College of Education and retitled the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies. The reconstituted program was placed under Director John Wedman.
