196: Creative Thinkers & The Spelman Sisterhood - with Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, President, Spelman College

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #66. In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Dr. Mary Schmidt-Campbell, President at Spelman College!  Only on the EdUp Experience can you hear the President of Spelman College talk about higher education financial models, the impact of Spelman College on Black Women across the World, and the magic formula for student success.  Mary came out of retirement to lead Spelman College with the goal of lifting up Black Women to be ambitious for themselves, but also for others.  Hear Mary talk about why creating cohorts of students with a common purpose is important, and why every single Spelman student must take African Diaspora & The World.  This is a can't miss episode with one of the most influential leaders in higher education today.

On Aug. 1, 2015, Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell began her tenure as the 10th president of Spelman College. A leading liberal arts college for women of African descent located in Atlanta, Georgia, Spelman has long enjoyed a reputation as the nation’s leading producer of Black women scientists.  Prior to arriving in Atlanta, Dr. Campbell was a major force in the cultural life of New York City. Her career in New York, which included various challenging roles, began at the Studio Museum in Harlem where she served for 10 years. Her role there began at a time when the city was on the verge of bankruptcy and Harlem was in steep decline. However, under her leadership, the museum was transformed from a rented loft to the country’s first accredited Black Fine Arts Museum.
