  Back to Shaw University  



When I was coming to Shaw University, a colleague said, “What a wonderful assignment God has given you!”  And a wonderful assignment — and challenge — it is.  I have been privileged to work with brilliant young minds and personalities who have and continue to make a difference on this campus, in their communities, in academia and in companies, agencies and corporations around the country and even around the world.  We’re also very proud of our Honors College alumni, their accomplishments and achievements.  They continue to be high achievers, and are inspirational members of our Honors College community.  I hope you consider joining this special group of students – let us help you shine!
