    Black Couple Make History: Both Will Be College Presidents

    Last week JBHE reported that Irwin D. Reid, president of Wayne State University, will retire at the end of this academic year. This January, Dr. Reid’s wife, Pamela Trotman Reid, will become president of Saint Joseph College in West Hartford, Connecticut. Thus, for six months, the Reids will both be college presidents. It is thought that this is the first time in American history where a married black couple have both held posts as college presidents.

    Pamela Trotman Reid is currently provost and executive vice president of Roosevelt University in Chicago. She previously taught at the University of Michigan and the City University of New York Graduate Center. Dr. Reid is a graduate of Howard University and holds a master’s degree from Temple University and a doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.
