Ten most dominant leaders of 2023

The HBCU Campaign Fund has named Dr. Patricia Ramsey, our president at Medgar Evers College, to its “The Ten Most Dominant HBCU Leaders of 2024” list.

The list honors leaders from both HBCU and Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs), with the HBCU Campaign Fund acting as a non-profit advocacy organization on behalf of these educational outlets.

According to the HCF’s press release, its Founder, President & CEO Demetrius Johnson, Jr., had this to say about the group of honorees:

“(They’ve) proven their responsibilities for shaping policies, changing perspectives, and making decisions that affect millions of individuals in the higher education space, and the daily needs of what an HBCU and MSI contributes to their communities.”

In an article written to announce the list, the HBCU Campaign Fund pointed to Dr. Ramsey’s impact on our Central Brooklyn campus:

“Distinguished as a ‘National Role Model’ by Minority Access, Inc., Dr. Ramsey is a leader and a scholar with a deep commitment to excellence and a passion for making a difference in the lives of students and their families. Through her visionary approach to education and commitment to expanding economic, social justice, and health equity, Dr. Ramsey was instrumental in launching MEC’s cannabis education program, the first for the City University of New York. Students may choose from 13 newly developed courses to earn a cannabis degree minor in testing, cultivation, business, or health, which will prepare them for opportunities in this burgeoning industry.”
