Dorothy Cowser Yancy, Shaw University

Shaw University President Dorothy Cowser Yancy announced her retirement in September, ending two-year tenure in her second tour as president of the school. The university relied on Yancy twice to assist with economic recovery efforts. Although there is no date set for Yancy’s retirement, Shaw is searching for a new president.
