To recruit and prepare potential future leaders to serve at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Clark Atlanta University (CAU) has established the Executive Leadership Institute (ELI).

HBCUs have gained attention in recent months with the country’s racial reckoning and the pandemic’s outsize toll on minority, low-income students, many of whom enroll at HBCUs. But these institutions also face unique leadership challenges to their longevity that ELI aims to address.

The inaugural ELI cohort of about 20 candidates—or Legacy Fellows—will be announced this spring. Qualified industry leaders from higher education to Wall Street were invited to apply with an interest in running HBCUs. Starting in June and ending in December, the immersive leadership program will last six months, first as a virtual program and potentially in person later.
