About this book

This book aims to help expand the pipeline for executive leaders at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs), where there is a high turnover in leadership, particularly among HBCUs. The editors and their contributors examine leadership at MSIs from an anti-deficit approach and create and add to the scholarly discourse around effective leadership practices, models, and strategies for leaders at MSIs. With this approach, this book seeks to help leaders of MSIs increase their leadership capacities, which may help expand the pipeline of MSI leaders and equip them with the skills to be successful in their positions.
