Texas Southern University Board of Regents Special Announcement

Posted on Friday, May 28, 2021

On behalf of the Board of Regents in a unified position, we have selected the sole finalist for the next President of Texas Southern University. This decision was reached after interviewing three highly qualified candidates. I want to thank Regent Marc Carter who chaired the Presidential Search Committee and its members for their thorough work on behalf of this great University. Dr. Lesia L. Crumpton-Young is the sole finalist. A confirmation vote by the Regents will occur at the next board meeting on June 17, 2021. An announcement regarding organizational continuity and executive transition will be announced next week.

Dr. Crumpton-Young is an experienced University leader and tireless advocate for students. Her impeccable credentials made her standout among the candidates. She brings with her an exciting and bold vision for Texas Southern University that aligns with the goals set forth by the Board of Regents.

The transition team will be lead by Regent Stephanie Nellons-Paige and Interim President Ken Huewitt.

Albert H. Myres, Sr.,
