NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Board of Regents will likely approve alumna Glenda Baskin Glover as the next president of Tennessee State University.
TBR Chancellor John Morgan on Monday said in a news release he recommended Glover, who is currently the dean of the College of Business at Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss., out of 4 finalists.
The full board will decide whether to approve the pick during a telephone meeting next Tuesday.
Glover, who got her bachelor's degree at the historically black university in Nashville, had wide support among TSU alumni and has a background in university fundraising.
Glover has served at Jackson State University since 1994 and is a licensed attorney and certified public accountant.
