The Rutgers Center for Minority Serving Institutions (CMSI), in its third year of hosting The Minority Serving Institutions Aspiring Leaders Forum, has announced its 2021 cohort.
Out of 500 nationwide applicants, only 14 aspiring leaders were selected. Among the chosen cohorts is Martin University's Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Dr. Kristie S. Johnson, CFRE. In her role, she oversees initiatives for increasing Martin's financial resources geared to better serving and assisting students in their educational goals, inclusive of grant writing, fundraising initiatives and campaigns, strategic capital planning, and relationship building.
"It is an honor and privilege to be invited to participate in this prestigious leadership program," says Kristie about her selection. "I look forward to learning from and collaborating with these bright future college and university presidents."
The Minority Serving Institutions Aspiring Leaders Forum is a three-day forum that incorporates a two-year mentoring program. The focus is to connect prominent Minority Serving Institution (MSI) leaders to aspiring leaders from the education, non-profit, and business realms to develop the next generation of MSI presidents.
The Rutgers Center for Minority Serving Institutions (CMSI) brings together researchers and practitioners from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and Asian American, Native American, and Pacific Islander Serving Institutions.
