July 2021

Andrea LewisAndrea Lewis, Ph.D., C’96, will join the inaugural class of Clark Atlanta University’s HBCU Executive Leadership Institute, which prepares administrators to lead historically Black colleges and universities and expand upon the historic role they play in the community. 

The program will also provide a certification program that trains future presidents for the nation’s HBCU’s.

"HBCUs afford Black students a safe place to call home while pursuing educational excellence, intellectual and social engagement, and charting their course to change the world," said Dr. Lewis.

The first competency and performance-based program of its kind, the Executive Leadership Institute will help preserve and strengthen HBCUs as a hub for education, opportunity and uplift in the community they serve.

After graduating summa cum laude from Spelman, Dr. Lewis earned a master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a doctorate from Georgia State University. She was recently named director of the Student Success Program at Spelman, an umbrella unit that provides academic support services to ensure all scholars complete college with appropriate and equitable resources.

Through her efforts as associate professor and former chair of the education department, Dr. Lewis was committed to preparing teachers through experiential learning. She led study trips to Cuba and New Orleans and developed partnerships for teacher candidates with local and national elementary, high school and collegiate institutions.
