Emerging Higher Ed Professionals Award
The Emerging Higher Ed Professionals Award recognizes a generation of higher education professionals who has at least three years of executive leadership experience, demonstrated leadership, and a drive to grow professionally. The individuals must serve a role at a historically black college and university (HBCU) or Minority-Serving Institution (MSI).
This recognition honors professionals who are inspiring others by demonstrating a commitment to the value, mission, and vision of the student affairs space, prioritizing a steadfast commitment to student success through their work, and positively impacting, engaging, and supporting their divisions and the campus community.
As the initiative program progresses, the Emerging Higher Ed Professional Award recipients will be asked to participate in year-long professional development activities, including mentoring, continuing education opportunities, leadership skills development, and networking with other senior leaders.
