Dr. Julianne Malveaux is now stepping down as President of Bennett College.  The historically black, all-women’s college is losing one of the nation’s most respected economists, writers and leaders with this decision, but the move appears to be the right one for Dr. Malveaux.

“Five years is the longest time I’ve ever held a job inmy life,” Malveaux said in a statement. “And while I remain committed to HBCUs and the compelling cause of access in higher education, I will actualize that commitment, now, in other arenas. I will miss Bennett College and will remain one of its most passionate advocates.”

Dr. Malveaux has been Bennett’s president since 2007, leading the university during one of its most difficult periods.  The school was placed on probation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools because of perceived “financial instability.”   Dr. Malveaux argued that this decision only served to increase the financial challenges being faced by the university.    The school was later taken off probation in late 2010.
