Statement Regarding Resignation of Shaw President Dr. Irma McClaurin
(Raleigh, NC) – Shaw University has seen many changes and experienced challenges in the last six months. And with change comes transitions. One of these is the mutually agreed upon decision by the Shaw Board and Dr. McClaurin for her to resign her position as Shaw President.
This was a difficult decision by all parties, but we are in agreement that it is the best decision for all involved. Shaw University wishes Dr. McClaurin great success in her future, and is genuinely appreciative of the leadership and vision she brought to Shaw during her tenure. Dr. McClaurin wishes Shaw University only the best as it plots a course toward sustainability, growth, and progress.
