Administrative Challenges and Organizational Leadership in Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Book Description

Student retention, engagement, and success are some of the biggest challenges that administrators and university leaders face in higher education settings. As financial support and steep competition pose an issue to student acquisition and participation, especially within Historically Black Colleges and Universities, it becomes pertinent that these academic organizations implement new leadership practices to assist in the overall success of the student, as well as the institution. Administrative Challenges and Organizational Leadership in Historically Black Colleges and Universities examines how administrations in Historically Black Educational Institutions utilize different leadership techniques to overcome challenges of student retention and engagement. Focusing on student development practices, organizational collaboration, funding for institutions, and support provided from faculty and staff within Historically Black Colleges and Universities, this book is an essential reference for university administrators, educators, researchers, and graduate-level students in the fields of education and sociology.
