Dr. Glenda Glover is settling into her position as Tennessee State University's new, and eighth, president.
Not only is Glover the new president of the only historically black state funded school in Tennessee, but she is also an alumni.
Last December, during an interfaith community prayer breakfast, she donated $50,000 to the university and challenged other alums to do the same and match her contribution.
"In fact, alumni giving is up over 200% from this time last year… so that's a great thing," Glover said.
She has been president for 62 days so far and said there haven't been any surprises.
"It's been my expectation… was to come here and make sure we had a spirit of unity and that the infrastructure was sufficient to address the needs of faculty and staff and students," Glover added.
Dr. Glover also said that her immediate task is healing the wounds left by a bitter dispute that saw the arrest of the faculty senate president last August.
"I looked at other things on campus to make sure we are treating faculty fairly. I think fair treatment of faculty… letting them know that we are moving in the same direction. There is no, I want this and you want that. We have one goal, that is to advance Tennessee State University," she told Nashville's News 2.
