Teresa Hardee has been named vice president of finance at Delaware State University in Dover.
Hardee will oversee and manage the day-to-day fiscal operations of the University, including budget, payroll, accounting, accounts payable/receivable, purchasing, contracting, fiscal planning, banking, investment reporting, procurement, cash management, housekeeping, maintenance, deferred maintenance and facilities.
Hardee will report directly to the DSU president and work closely with Amir Mohammadi, executive vice president and University treasurer.
Hardee arrives at DSU after serving the last five years as the chief financial officer and vice president for Administrative and Financial Services at Florida A&M University.
Prior to that, Dr. Hardee served as the assistant vice chancellor for budgets and financial planning from 2003 to 2007 and as the director of internal audit from 2002 to 2003, both at North Carolina Central University. She also held a succession of posts for the state of North Carolina.
Mr. Mohammadi, who served as the chair of the search committee, said with the University embarking on the construction of a new optics research facility, moving toward the future establishment of a new Wilmington area satellite site and continuing its ongoing energy saving upgrades on campus, this was a critical appointment.
