I love college president’s who are a personal cheerleader for the institution that they currently serve. The usage of social media, rather it’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter in the life of a college president gives the students and stakeholders a taste of what life is really like on their campuses. This opportunity puts the HBCU pride in perspective and brings a personal touch to the platform for… RECRUITMENT and DOLLARS!!!!

Here is a list of college presidents and chancellors at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), which is not in no particular order. There are explanations of what inspires me to learn from each of them, who are behind those accounts daily.

Let’s thank them for their leadership!

He is focused on the growth of the institution through enrollment and financially. He is continually updating you on everything CENTRAL, follow him @StudentPres (Twitter) / @StudentPres_ (Instagram).

Aminta Breaux

President of Bowie State University. 1,629 followers. Dr. Aminta Breaux has served as the 10th president since July 2017, and her twitter account is well worth noting. It is like her own personal journal of her day-to-day duties as president of Bowie. Follow her @PresBreaux on Twitter.

Dr. Jenkins' leadership is such a dominant one, from following his journey at West Virginia State University, and now at Coppin State.

Makola Abdullah

President of Virginia State University. 5,731 followers on Twitter. 3,657 followers on Instagram.

Walter m. kimbrough

President of Dillard University. 21.1K followers on Twitter. 6,015 on Instagram. There are no words to describe President Kimbrough.

Dr. Jones was named a Ten Most Dominant HBCU Leader of 2020 by the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF), and it is nothing like following his everyday activity and accomplishments during his tenure at FVSU.

President of Tennessee State University. 2,015 followers on Twitter. 1,211 on Instagram. Dr. Glover is the youngest to the social media scene.
