Cheyney University Provost on the Short List of Presidential Candidates at Metropolitan State University in Minnesota

Last summer Wilson Bradshaw, an African American, stepped down as president of Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota, to take the position of president of Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers.

Now another black man is one of the five finalists for the presidency of Metropolitan State University. Kenoye Kelvin Eke, provost and vice president for academic and student affairs at Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, is on the short list to replace Bradshaw.

Dr. Eke is a graduate of Alabama A&M University. He holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in political science from Clark Atlanta University. Dr. Eke previously served as an administrator at Kentucky State University, California State University at Monterey Bay, and Savannah State University.
