Finally, Tennessee State University (TSU) has new leadership. Her name is Glenda Glover and she is an alumna of the institution. She comes to TSU from Jackson State University, where she served as the Dean of the School of Business. From my read of the HBCU presidential pool, Glover was relatively unknown on a national front. However, her past experience seems to have given her the vision to lead TSU, an institution that has been struggling for decades and has been mired in controversy in recent years.
