Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



The university’s Graduate School of Education houses the Center for Minority Serving Institutions, which conducts research, convenes scholars, improves leadership practices and promotes collaborative efforts to support minority-serving institutions and their students. This three-year grant will launch the Center’s Aspiring Minority Serving Institutions Leaders Forum, which will enable 60 mid-career professionals to participate in development opportunities that will help prepare them to lead colleges that serve large numbers of low-income and students of color.  Every two years, the Center will plan and host a three-day forum that convenes experienced MSI leaders and 30 mid-career administrators from the education, nonprofit and business sectors.
