Clark Atlanta U. Launches Leadership Institute for Next Generation of HBCU Presidents

Clark Atlanta University has announced the launch of the HBCU Executive Leadership Institute, which will serve as an incubator for recruiting and developing future presidents of more than 100 historically Black colleges and universities.

The first-of-its-kind program will help preserve and strengthen HBCUs as a hub for education, opportunity and uplift in the Black community, as well as immerse qualified candidates in the various components of effectively leading an HBCU, the historically Black institution announced Thursday.

“HBCUs have a clear value proposition and continue to be the standard-bearers of Black excellence across every sector of business and society,” said Clark Atlanta President George French. “Through ELI, we are committed to identifying dynamic leaders who can advance the growth and sustainability of our institutions of higher learning. We invite leaders of industry – from Silicon Valley and Wall Street to non-profits, government, higher education and the creative class – to submit their applications and be a part of history.”

Louis Sullivan, president emeritus, Morehouse School of Medicine, concurred.

“This is a visionary program that grew out of the Council of Past Presidents to ground prospective fellows in HBCU specific competencies,” Sullivan said.
