Succession Planning in HBCUs Ensures Long-Term Sustainability
Succession planning is paramount in Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as it can play a critical role in preserving these institutions' legacy, values, and unique contributions. With a strong succession plan, HBCUs can ensure a smooth transition of leadership, cultivate a pipeline of diverse and visionary leaders, and continue to fulfill their vital mission of empowering generations of students and advancing social justice. The significance of succession planning in HBCUs goes beyond institutional stability; it is a commitment to sustaining the legacy and impact of our historic institutions for years to come.
