Howard Stays Home to Find New Provost, Wayne Frederick

UPDATED June 13, 2013
Howard University yesterday announced Dr. Wayne Frederick as its new provost and vice-president of academic affairs. Dr. Frederick is an alumnus of Howard three times over, and has received a number of professional accolades as a surgeon and professor.
As Professor in the Department of Surgery at Howard, Frederick is a master teacher who has received teaching awards every year since the beginning of his tenure.  As a member of the faculty, he fulfilled what he called “a career aspiration” of working with his mentor, LaSalle D. Leffall, Jr., M.D. – an opportunity that was expanded during this current academic year when Dr. Leffall asked Dr. Frederick to serve as Interim Deputy Provost for Health Sciences.
“We are indeed fortunate that Dr. Frederick has accepted President Ribeau’s request to serve alma mater,” Leffall said.  He is an accomplished surgeon, teacher, administrator, leader and public servant.”
