Irma McClaurin named president of Shaw University

 
The Wilmington Journal
 
September 9, 2010
 
Published reports on Wednesday indicate that Dr. Irma McClaurin, a highly respected Associate Vice President for System Academic Administration at the University of Minnesota, has been named the 15th president, and second female president to serve at Shaw University.

Three weeks ago, The Wilmington Journal, based on information confirmed by Shaw University spokesperson Dr. Kandace Harris, reported that the Board of Trustees were expected on Monday, August 23rd that Interim President Dr. Dorothy Cowser Yancy would step down, and a new president would be named then.

On August 19, this paper also reported, and confirmed through the Washington Afro-American Newspaper in Washington, D.C., “…unless difficulties arise, the board is expected to present Dr. Alvin Thornton, the former interim provost and chief academic officer at Howard University.”

While the Washington Afro, through its own sources, did confirm that, “…Dr. Thornton and [Shaw University were] still in negotiations [and] the deal is almost certain to go through, and he is definitely in line to become the next president.”

In response, Shaw University officials were quick to contradict the story. Dr. Harris, who is also chair of the Communications Dept. at Shaw, even called the night before the story was published to say that the Aug. 23rd announcement by the Trustee Board had been postponed until further notice, a direct change from what she confirmed by phone earlier that day.

Neither she, Board Chairman Willie Gary, nor any other Shaw official ever denied during the interim three weeks that Dr. Thornton was at the top of the list for selection, and was in negotiations.
