Elwood L. Robinson, provost ..., 29 Sept 2014 [cached]
Elwood L. Robinson, provost and vice-president for academic affairs at Cambridge College in Massachusetts, was elected to the role at Winston-Salem State on Friday by the UNC Board of Governors. He will start the job Jan. 1.
Robinson will be taking over the role from Donald J. Reaves, who announced last spring that he would step down after eight years in the job.
As chief academic officer since 2012 for Cambridge College, a private, not-for-profit school, Robinson has advised the school's president on educational policy and the development of teaching and academic programs.
A native of Ivanhoe, Robinson graduated magna cum laude from N.C. Central University in 1978 with a degree in psychology. He earned a master's degree from Fisk University in Tennessee. After a pre-doctoral internship at Duke University Medical Center, he earned a doctorate in clinical psychology from Pennsylvania State University in 1986. He completed his clinical training as a research associate at Duke University Medical Center.
In 1984, Robinson joined the faculty of NCCU. He was later named director of the Minority Access to Research Careers Program, which provides research-training opportunities for students and faculty from minority groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. He directed the federally funded program for 11 years.
From 1993 to1996, Robinson served as chair of NCCU's Psychology Department. During his three-year term, he instituted a new clinical master's program, developed a faculty development program, increased external funding, and improved graduation rates by 25 percent. He also directed NCCU's Alcohol Research Center.
In 2006, Robinson was named founding dean of the NCCU College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, where he oversaw nine departments, five centers and over 200 faculty and staff.  He remained in the post until he left for Cambridge College in 2012.
