Dr. Rosalind Fuse-Hall (pictured above) will become the 17th president of Bennett College for Women starting July 1, following a press conference that makes the appointment official. Bennett College is an all-women’s, historically black institution in Greensboro, North Carolina. She succeeds Dr. Esther Terry, who has served in the position for the past year.
Dr. Fuse-Hall has 25 years of education experience. She joins Bennett College from Florida A&M University where she serves as executive director of Title III programs (federal grant programs that benefit HBCUs) and chief of staff to the president. She applied for the president’s job at Bennett a decade ago and wasn’t chosen. Now that she’s got it, her plan is to increase enrollment from 730 to 1,000 students through local and national recruitment and focus on ways to prepare students for graduate study and a future that reaches out globally.
Congrats to Dr. Fuse-Hall!
