Governor recognizes retiring Citadel Provost, Samuel M. Hines, Jr.
The Citadel congratulates Dr. Samuel H. Hines on being recognized by the Governor with the Order of the Silver Crescent. Dr. Hines will teach at the college in the future but officially retired from the position of provost and dean of The Citadel on June 30, 2015.
Hines’ contributions to higher education have spanned a 45-year career. Prior to assuming the provost position at The Citadel in 2007, he was a professor and administrator for the College of Charleston for 34 years where he served in numerous positions including founding dean of both the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs; vice president for Departmental Affairs; and associate provost.
“Dr. Sam Hines has helped lead The Citadel to national prominence during his tenure as provost and dean of the college,” said Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa. “We are pleased he will return to the faculty and continue educating and developing principled leaders for all walks of life.”
Dr. Connie Ledoux Book becomes provost and dean of The Citadel July 1, joining the college from Elon University where she was the associate provost of academic affairs and a member of the senior cabinet.
Thank you for your service to the Military College of South Carolina, Dr. Hines!
