Ribeau leaving BGSU for Howard University

President Sidney A. Ribeau will leave BGSU to become the 16th president of Howard University on Aug. 1. The announcement was made by Howard trustees May 7.

Located in Washington, D.C., Howard is one of the nation’s leading historically black institutions, and is comprised of 12 schools and colleges with 10,500 students. The private university offers 120 areas of study leading to undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees and operates Howard University Hospital, a Level One Trauma Center.

“I am excited by the opportunity to head this historic institution,” Ribeau said. “Howard is a remarkable university, a truly international university and one that has made significant contributions not only in this country but around the world, training principally African-Americans for global leadership roles in America and the world.”

“The search committee was very impressed with Dr. Ribeau’s credentials and his reputation as a facilitator of change and collegial leader. He is a charismatic executive who works effectively inside and outside the institution he heads,” said Gen. Colin L. Powell, who with Richard D. Parsons, chairman of the board of Time Warner Inc., co-chaired the Howard University Search Committee.
