CDU President and CEO Dr. David Carlisle was recognized as one of the Ten Most Dominant HBCU Leaders of 2022 by the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF).

HCF Founder, President & CEO, Demetrius Johnson Jr. said that Dr. Carlisle and his fellow honorees have “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 or Minority-Serving Institution contributes academically.”

This is the fifth class of HCF’s annual Ten Most Dominant HBCU Leaders Award. The award underscores the distinguished and influential role leaders from across HBCUs and MSIs have to effectively move their institution forward.
