What Happens When A HBCU President Goes From One HBCU To Another

Change is inevitable, and the students of Lincoln University are experiencing this sentiment first hand.

Now former-President of the Missouri HBCU, Kevin Rome, who had been serving at Lincoln University since mid-2013 has recently resigned to take office at Fisk University.

Dr. Rome will take the place of Interim President Frank Sims, and is the conclusion to an 8-month selection process to find the next chief-of-staff. Prior to working with Lincoln, the new President served as an administrator at North Carolina State University. This, alongside other executive roles within the academic circuit, made him the best-fit person for the acclaimed position.

Both Fisk and Lincoln are both Historically Black Universities, with Fisk being considered a top-tier liberal arts college by U.S. News and World Report.
The resignation will come into full effect on June 30th and according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, University officials at Lincoln are already on the hunt for a replacement.
