RALEIGH – Shaw University appointed Tashni-Ann Dubroy as its next president Saturday. The Historically Black University’s Board of Trustees selected Dubroy to replace interim president Dr. Gaddis Faulcon beginning August 1.

Dubroy is deeply familiar with Shaw. She attended Shaw as a student, was the Chair of the Natural Sciences and Math Department for three years and served as Special Assistant to the President for the past year and a half. In addition to her education at Shaw, Dubroy has a PhD in chemistry from North Carolina State University and an MBA from Rutgers.

Dubroy’s experience is not limited to academia, though. With experience as an entrepreneur, nonprofit founder, chemist and corporate manager, Dubroy has the type of well-rounded profile it takes to lead a university in a fast-growing city.

“Shaw needed a president with a fresh vision to take us in a new direction,” said Board of Trustees Chairman Joe Bell. “At different points in history, different types of leaders are needed and for Shaw, this is the time for someone with a solid business background. An entrepreneur. A solid academic. Dr. Dubroy is all that and more,” he added.
