Shaw University has announced that its president is stepping down to take a position at another school.
The historically black university said in a news release Wednesday that Tashni-Ann Dubroy is resigning to become executive vice president and chief operating officer at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Dubroy was appointed to the role of president at Shaw in May 2015. The university in Raleigh credits her with improving fundraising and budgeting while overseeing an enrollment increase.
Dubroy earned her bachelor's degree from Shaw and later received her doctorate degree in chemistry in 2007 from North Carolina State University. She also has a master's degree in business from Rutgers University.
