Higher Education in Florida
Changes at the top of Florida's historically black colleges
It's a time of new leadership.
Former Jacksonville sheriff Nat Glover recently completed his first full year as the 29th president of Edward Waters College, a job he took on an interim basis in 2010 before it was made permanent in February 2011. Glover, a Waters graduate, helped stabilize the institution’s finances. In Glover, the school has a champion well connected in Jacksonville and able to woo donations from business leaders. He also has a plan to build enrollment at Waters, which had financial troubles and difficulty getting reaccredited several years ago. Glover also wants to add majors and new buildings.
