Mary Baldwin University announced this week that Tynisha Willingham, PhD, will serve as interim provost and chief academic officer effective February 15. She began her tenure at MBU in the summer of 2020 as dean of the College of Education.
“I am delighted to lead and shape the academic enterprise at Mary Baldwin University,” Willingham said. “We are a family that values rich and hard dialogues about pressing issues while holding a space for one another’s common humanity. I am excited to share in the vision where our faculty and holistic programming efforts meet students where they are; whether on our residential campus, Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences, or through MBU Online.”
