The Characteristics Of Historically Black College And University Presidents And Their Role In Grooming The Next Generation Of Leaders, Sydney Freeman Jr., Marybeth Gasmen

Sydney Freeman Jr., PhD, CFD

We know almost nothing about the pathways to the HBCU presidency or the role that current presidents play in grooming future presidents. More literature is needed in order to deepen our understanding of the HBCU presidency.

Purpose: With this study, we sought to capture the background characteristics of HBCU leaders, to lay the ground work for future studies on HBCU presidents, and to understand the role these leaders play in grooming and ...

Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

This report is the first publication from the New York City Black and Latino Male High School Achievement Study, a project that entailed individual interviews with 415 students from 40 public high schools – 90 were enrolled in 44 colleges and universities, the rest were college-bound high school juniors and seniors.

Randolph B Muhammad

One component of leadership today that is routinely discussed is a leader’s ability to be “transformational.” I opine that transformational in this context is a leaders ability to capitalize on differences associated with a multi-cultural society effecting societal change and ensuring social justice (education is a mechanism of social justice) for all.

However, too many recent graduates still demonstrate very weak literacy and numeracy skills. They are not likely to lead fulfilling lives. School leaders have a moral imperative to address this injustice. Research shows that ...
