Board Honors President Davies with Title of President Emerita

October 12, 2018

During yesterday’s Board of Trustees meeting, the Board honored President Pamela Davies with the title of President Emerita. The conferring of this honor recognizes Dr. Davies’ deep commitment to Queens during her nearly 19 years of service, as well as her exemplary demonstration of the university’s motto Non Ministrare Sed Ministrare or “Not to be served, but to serve.”

During her tenure, Dr.  Davies has led Queens through the design and implementation of four ambitious strategic plans. She has left an indelible mark on every facet of Queens, from the creation of new colleges and schools to enrollment to athletics to facilities to the largest endowment in the university’s 161-year history.

As President Emerita, Dr. Davies may be called upon by our next university president to provide counsel or to serve in various volunteer capacities in support of the university’s goals. She will assume the title of President Emerita at the conclusion of her presidency, effective July 1, 2019.  After a sabbatical year devoted to research and writing in her academic discipline, Dr. Davies will also serve as a professor of strategy in the McColl School of Business.
