Breaking Glass Ceilings As a Black Woman Higher Ed Leader

This is The EdUp Experience President Series, Episode #25 - In this episode, we welcome Dr. Claudia Schrader the President of Kingsborough Community College

Dr. Schrader describes her student-first, success and retention model with a focus on the diverse student body she serves, that consistently ranks among the leading community colleges in the country in associate degrees awarded to minority students. 

As the first Black woman President in the 56-year history of the college, she is definitely a trailblazer and role model. We were excited to gain her insights on serving as an inspiration in breaking glass ceilings for Black women, supporting mentorship and retention of Black women faculty, staff and students, and her core mission driven by a passion to help others. We were also honored to welcome her as the first Black woman President on our podcast. And we know she won't be the last! 

She also shares some unique strategies on her campus for collaborative learning, integrated learning and student support for incoming students to increase retention, foster success, and graduate into the community to better their own lives and improve society-at-large.
