Four UNCF Member Presidents Among HBCU Campaign Fund’s “Most Dominant HBCU Leaders of 2020”
The HBCU Campaign Fund, a non-profit that advocates for HBCUs and MSIs, recently released its list of The Ten Most Dominant HBCU Leaders of 2020. The list comprises ten chancellors and presidents that currently serve an HBCU or MSI, and who are dominant and influential leaders, focused on the progress of moving their institutions forward.
“The dynamics of higher education in America today are driving the demand for a new set of skills and capabilities for tomorrow’s leaders. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) provide quality education to low-income, first-generation, and academically underprepared students. Those institutions of such also serve a diverse population while maintaining the role as the backbone of educational institutions for more than 140-year history,” the report states.
UNCF wishes to recognize all these leaders, and particularly wants to congratulate the four leaders from its member institutions: Dr. Billy C. Hawkins, president of Talladega College; Dr. Cynthia Warrick, president of Stillman College; Dr. George T. French, Jr. president of Clark Atlanta University; and Dr. W. Franklin Evans, president of Voorhees College.
