Delaware State Trustees Elect First Female Board Chair

At their semi-annual retreat, the Delaware State University Board of Trustees elected Dr. Wilma Mishoe as their Chair. Dr. Mishoe is the first woman in the institution’s 126-year history to serve as the chair of the Board of Trustees.

Dr. Mishoe – who in addition to her DSU board service has more than 35 years as a higher education administrator – is the daughter of the late Dr. Luna Mishoe who served as President of then-Delaware State College from 1960 to 1987, an era of unprecedented growth and transformation for the institution.
