    Dr. Regine Jackson Speaks on the Imperative Role of Black Women Leadership in Higher Education

    January 9, 2024

    Dean of Humanities, Social Sciences, Media and Arts and professor of sociology, Dr. Regine Jackson, joins On Topic to share her experiences, wisdom, and reflections on the need for Black women leadership in higher education. As the world witnessed the unfortunate resignation of Dr. Claudine Gay from Harvard University, the spotlight has intensified on the challenges Black women leaders face in academic institutions.

    The statistics speak volumes – only 33 percent of college presidents in the U.S. are women, and a mere 28 percent are people of color. Dr. Jackson delves into the nuances of this underrepresentation and its impact on the educational landscape. 

    As we reflect on recent events, let us collectively learn from these experiences to pave the way for a future where Black women not only endure but thrive in leadership roles within our educational institutions. Through understanding, dialogue, and concerted efforts, we can build a tomorrow that genuinely values, supports and uplifts the brilliance of all Black women in academia.
