(September 5, 2019 by Alex Vuocolo, Delaware Business Times) Delaware State University Provost Dr. Tony Allen will assume the presidency of the school on January 1 following the retirement of Wilma Mishoe after a 40-year career in education.
In an interview Thursday evening, Allen expressed excitement about the job ahead.
“I have been chasing Delaware State University for more than a decade so to arrive at this opportunity now after having the opportunity to work for a leader like Dr. Mishoe has been more than I ever imagined, Allen said. “As long as we are educating students to solve real-world problems, making good on Delaware’s State University and continuing to raise the standard of performance, there is no challenge beyond our capacity.”
Allen has a background in the corporate sector as the former head of corporate reputation for Bank of America, where he worked to build the bank’s brand and community presence across customers, academics and other stakeholders.
