Dr. Carol A. Cartwright named interim president of BGSU

The BGSU Board of Trustees voted unanimously Friday (June 6) to name Dr. Carol A. Cartwright interim president effective July 21. Cartwright will succeed Dr. Sidney A. Ribeau, who leaves BGSU to accept the presidency of Howard University on Aug. 1.

The president of Kent State University from 1991-2006, Cartwright has “all the qualities we were looking for, plus the Ohio background and a recent presidency,” said Michael Marsh, board of trustees chair.

“She has a wonderful reputation, and we are very fortunate that she is both willing and available at this important time for Bowling Green,” Marsh added.

“Carol Cartwright will make an outstanding interim president for Bowling Green State University,” Ribeau said. “Not only is Dr. Cartwright a respected colleague of mine, she is respected in the state of Ohio and in the nation. I am pleased to be leaving BGSU in her very capable hands.”

Cartwright will live in the University Guest House until the University House on Wintergarden Road becomes available. “I’m very eager to get to Bowling Green and meet with people,” she said by phone Friday. “It’s a situation where I don’t think there will be a steep learning curve because I’m familiar with Bowling Green’s mission.
