Dr. William M. Tsutsui will become the 11th President of Hendrix College beginning
June 2014. He comes to Hendrix from Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, the
largest of seven colleges and schools at Southern Methodist University, where he
has served as Dean and Professor of History.
“Today, despite the challenges faced by all liberal arts colleges, Hendrix holds
an enviable position. Your Hendrix Odyssey has clearly energized the campus
and provided focus, identity, and national profile in a crowded academic marketplace.
I firmly believe that Hendrix is well prepared for the challenges ahead and I look
forward to working with the trustees, faculty, staff, and students to make a real
contribution to Hendrix’s future.”
