Filed in HBCUs on March 11, 2016
Four former presidents of predominantly Black universities have formed a new executive search firm that will focus on filling positions at historically Black colleges and universities and other colleges and universities where Blacks make up a large percentage of the student body.
TM2 Education Search was founded by John Garland former President of Central State University; Sidney Ribeau, former President of Howard University; Wayne Watson, president emeritus of Chicago State University; and Dorothy Cowser Yancy, president emerita of both Johnson C. Smith University and Shaw University.
Christopher Braswell was named president of TM2 Education Search, which is based in Washington, D.C. He has 20 years of experience in search firms. He stated that “completing a successful search is only part of the job. We intend to maintain long-term relationships with leaders and schools, providing the coaching necessary for successful transitions.” Braswell is a graduate of historically Black North Carolina A&T State University.
