THE PRESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE

Lead. Inspire. Lift.

There is a leadership shortage. Our institutions are wrought with highly
publicized rates of turnover in Executive Leadership. Our institutional habitus
and subsequent institutional needs are profoundly different from majority
institutions. As a result, we need Executive Leadership training that enhances
the skills of leaders for institutions that are culturally and historically rich in
mission and purpose.

Higher Education Leadership Foundation (H.E.L.F) Presidential Leadership
Institute (PLI) is both a proactively and responsively designed training program
for HBCU Executive Leadership. The program is a year-long institute using an
adaptation of functional mentoring model (Thorndyke et al., 2008) that is
culturally responsive and inherently appropriate for our leadership challenges.
Involving horizontal and lateral mentoring from veteran executive leaders,
Sages, and peer groups, Trailblazers, the H.E.L.F Mentorship Model is integral
to the longitudinal success of our participants.
