Harris-Stowe State University has hired Quincy Rose to lead its College of Education, the school announced Tuesday.
Rose joined Harris-Stowe last week from Grambling State University where she was the department chair and associate professor of curriculum and instruction.
Similar to Harris-Stowe, Grambling State is a public, historically black college.
Rose previously spent a few years at Tusculum College, a private college in Tennessee.
“I am excited about the radical transformation that will occur within the College of Education as we move forward to becoming the premiere institution that produces the top educators throughout the country,” Rose said in a statement.
She told the Post-Dispatch that the “transformation” includes forthcoming graduate programs, making some degree programs available online and potentially offering a five-year bachelor’s to master’s degree option.
“We want to do unique and innovative things as it relates to teacher certifications,” Rose said.
Rose earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Delaware State University, and her doctoral degree from Wilmington University.
According to a statement from the university, Rose was chosen after “an extensive search” to replace former dean Leila Vickers who retired in June 2017.
