Marx, third president of the University of West Florida and professor of mathematics and statistics, will present a special lecture, “Universities: Passages But No Rites,” in honor of his recent retirement. Inaugurated as president of UWF in September 1988, Marx oversaw significant expansion of the University’s campus, presence and resources. During his tenure, Congress approved the 136-acre land swap to create UWF on the Emerald Coast in Fort Walton Beach, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Marx ushered in the beginning of the education specialist program as well as facilities such as the Center for Fine and Performing Arts, College of Education Complex, student services building, psychology building, residence halls and on-campus apartments.
