Wayne Frederick named provost at Howard University

Wayne Frederick named provost at Howard U.


Today, Howard University President Sidney A. Ribeau, named Director of Howard University Cancer Center, Interim Deputy Provost for Health Sciences, and Howard alumnus Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick (B.S. ’92, M.D. ’94, MBA ’11) Provost and Chief Academic Officer. The appointment is effective June 18, 2012.

“A trusted leader, a revered expert in his field and a champion in his community, Dr. Frederick embodies Howard’s unwavering pursuit of ‘Truth and Service.’ With his appointment, we reaffirm our commitment to the vision of a University prominent in research and education across all disciplines,” said Ribeau.

This appointment follows a rigorous, open, national search chaired by the Dean of the College of Pharmacy, Anthony K. Wutoh Ph.D., that included discussions with constituents throughout the entire Howard University community.

Dr. Frederick’s knowledge of the University is broad and deep.  As interim deputy provost, he demonstrated university-wide leadership, engaged in academic planning, implemented priorities and worked collaboratively with deans, faculty, staff and students on all levels. 

Dean Kurt Schmoke, interim Deputy Provost for Academic Affairs, points to this diverse background as a major strength that Dr. Frederick brings to the new role of Provost. “I have been impressed by his keen intellect and his wonderful enthusiasm of the future of Howard University," he said.

As Professor in the Department of Surgery at Howard, Frederick is a master teacher who has received teaching awards every year since the beginning of his tenure.  As a member of the faculty, he fulfilled what he called “a career aspiration” of working with his mentor, LaSalle D. Leffall, Jr., M.D. – an opportunity that was expanded during this current academic year when Dr. Leffall asked Dr. Frederick to serve as Interim Deputy Provost for Health Sciences. 

“We are indeed fortunate that Dr. Frederick has accepted President Ribeau’s request to serve alma mater,” Leffall said.  He is an accomplished surgeon, teacher, administrator, leader and public servant.”

Frederick, originally from Port of Spain, Trinidad, is a bright and passionate son of Howard. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology, his medical degree from the College of Medicine, and his Masters in Business Administration from the School of Business.

He completed a post-doctoral research fellowship and a surgical oncology fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center, where he spent his final year as Chief Administrative Fellow. At the University of Connecticut Health Center, he became the Associate Director of the Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Director of Surgical Oncology and Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery.
