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, out of four 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.
