Paulette Dillard to Lead Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina

A week ago it was announced that Tashni-Ann Dubroy had reigned her position as president of historically Black Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, in order to take the position as executive vice president and chief operating officer at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Now the university’s board of trustees has named Paulette Dillard to serve as interim president while a nationwide search is underway to find the next permanent president of the university.

“It is my distinguished honor to lead this extraordinary university,” Dr. Dillard said. “I look forward to working with the Board to plot continued success in our areas of strength, and to visualize new opportunities to grow Shaw’s brand in workforce development and community support.”

Dr. Dillard has served as a department chair, dean, and vice president of academic affairs at the university. She holds an MBA from Belmont University in Nashville and a Ph.D. in cell biology from Clark Atlanta University.
