C. Reynold Verret, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Savannah State University, will be the next president of Xavier University of Louisiana. Mr. Verret, a biochemist who came to the United States as a refugee from Haiti in 1963, said in a written statement that he intends to continue the university's devotion to empowering the underserved.

NEW ORLEANS, LA (May 14, 2015) - The Board of Trustees of Xavier University of Louisiana announced today that it has unanimously elected Dr. C. Reynold Verret as the university's next president.
"I would like to congratulate and welcome Dr. Verret to the Xavier family," said Michael Rue, chairman of the Board of Trustees.
...
"While there were a number of highly-qualified candidates, Dr. Verret stood out for his proven leadership and experience expanding enrollment and increasing graduation rates. His record of achievement, personal history, and values set him apart as the clear choice to carry on the ideals that our founder, St. Katharine Drexel, and our longstanding president, Dr. Norman C. Francis, wove into the fabric of this institution."
Dr. Verret is joining Xavier from Savannah State University where he has served as provost and chief academic officer since 2012. The university is recognized as the oldest institution of higher learning in coastal Georgia and the first public Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the state.
"I am deeply honored to be elected as the next president of Xavier and am excited to engage the entire Xavier community in envisioning a future that sustains the university's distinct mission in a changing higher education environment and that responds to societal need," said Dr. Verret. "Upon arriving in this country as a refugee from Haiti in 1963, I was supported by many who nurtured my love of learning and science and gave me the encouragement and confidence to persevere. During my tenure at Xavier, I will continue paying it forward, helping generations of young people realize their dreams, regardless of their backgrounds."
Dr. Verret is uniquely qualified by his experience, education, and values to guide Xavier's mission of promoting a more just and humane society by preparing its students to assume roles of leadership and service in a global society. His journey from immigrating to the United States as a young boy to guiding institutions of higher education to success has equipped him with distinctive skills and understanding to lead an HBCU in general, and Xavier in particular.
"From its beginning, Xavier has been dedicated to empowerment of the underserved and voiceless through education, which is a vital instrument of societal strength and justice. In this regard, Xavier's purpose remains relevant, and I am eager to sustain and strengthen it," said Dr. Verret. "I have been shaped by the encounter of faith and reason, as a student of the Jesuits at the former Brooklyn Preparatory, of the Sisters of St. Joseph, and before then, by the Fathers of the Holy Spirit."
Dr. Verret was identified through a national search that followed the September 2014 announcement that Dr. Francis would be retiring on June 30, 2015.
...
The unanimous election of Dr. Verret is an indicator that the Xavier community's voice was heard loud and clear," said Gladstone Jones, III, who chaired Xavier's Presidential Search Committee.
...
Following the Search Committee's recommendation, Dr. Francis met Dr. Verret just prior to the vote by the Board of Trustees.
...
"I am most pleased to welcome Dr. Verret to Xavier. I have complete confidence that the Board of Trustees made a wise decision, and I know that Dr. Verret will carry on the mission and values of this institution far into the future," said Dr. Francis, who is retiring after more than 56 years of service to Xavier with 47 years as its president.
...

He was also a postdoctoral fellow at the Howard Hughes Institute for Immunology at Yale University and at the Center for Cancer Research at MIT.
