University of Louisiana System President Sandra Woodley will recommend that the UL System Board of Supervisors appoint Dr. Cynthia Warrick to serve as interim president of Grambling State University. The board will consider Warrick’s appointment at its June 27 meeting in Baton Rouge.
If approved, Warrick would begin service on effective July 1, 2014.
“While we search for a permanent leader for Grambling State, the university needs an interim president with the skills and expertise to address a variety of issues. Dr. Warrick has proven capable of enacting positive change in the face of significant challenges, and, I believe, she is the right person to move the university forward during this transitional period,” said Woodley.
In the 2012-13 academic year, Warrick served as interim president at South Carolina State University, the state’s only public historically Black university. She currently is a Senior Fellow for the Center for Minority Health Services Research at Howard University’s College of Pharmacy, a position she has held since 2009.
