The Delaware ACE Women’s Network has announced that two Delaware State University administrators will be among 2020 recipients of their top annual awards.
Dr. Saundra F, DeLauder, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, will be honored next month as the recipient of the 2020 DAWN Leadership Award. After arriving at Del State in 2013 as the Dean of Graduate Studies, she was later elevated to Vice Provost of Academic Affairs. In January 2020, Dr. DeLauder became the first woman to be appointed Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs in the 129-year history of the University.
She is the daughter-in-law to the late Dr. William B. DeLauder, president of Delaware State University from 1987-2003. He is the father of her husband, William B. DeLauder, Jr.
Jarso J. Saygbe, Associate Vice President of Academic Advisement, will also receive the 2020 DAWN Rising Star Award. Ms. Saygbe began her tenure at Del State in 2012 as the Director of Advisement for the then-College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology. After leaving the University in 2016 to work in Liberia, she returned in 2018 as the executive director of Academic Advisement and later promoted to Associate Vice President over that area.
In addition to overseeing Academic Advisement, Mrs. Saygbe is pursuing a doctorate in Educational Leadership.
The awards will be presented during a virtual ceremony on Nov.
