HBCU Campaign Chancellor/President Spotlight Tuesday - Dr. Debra Saunders-White

PVAMUPrez1_zpsjwzgb9zr.jpgEach Tuesday the D.J's Music Site HBCU Campaign Fund organization will highlight a HBCU Chancellor or President. This is in promotion of our social media campaign to bring awareness and recognition of the academic excellence that HBCU leadership produce as well as historically black colleges and universities.

This Tuesday (11/3/15), we highlighted Dr. Debra Saunders-White, (pictured on the right), President of North Carolina Central University.

Dr. Debra Saunders-White (Ed.D.), began as the 11th Chancellor of North Carolina Central University on June 1, 2013.

A Hampton, VA., native, Saunders-White earned her Bachelor's degree in history from the University of Virginia. She earned a master's of business administration from The College of William & Mary and a doctorate in higher education administration from The George Washington University.

Prior to Saunders-White NCCU appointment, she served as acting assistant secretary for the office of Postsecondary Education at the U.S. Department of Education. Saunders-White joined the Department of Education in May 2011 as the deputy assistant secretary for higher education programs.

Prior to entering higher education administration, Saunders-White spent 15 years in the corporate sector at IBM.

Saunders-White left Hampton the following year to join the University of North Carolina Wilmington  (UNCW) as Vice Chancellor for Information Technology systems.
