The New Era of Diversity
Roach, Ronald
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v25 n25 p11-13 Jan 2009
In early February 2009, Molly Corbett Broad for the first time in her tenure as the American Council on Education's (ACE) president will preside over the organization's annual national meeting in Washington, D.C. ACE is the largest nonprofit association to represent college and university presidents and chancellors, with a membership drawn from more than 1,800 accredited, degree-granting institutions in the United States. Broad is known widely in American higher education circles for her tenure as president of the University of North Carolina system from 1997 to 2006. In North Carolina, she presided over the 16-school university system that saw significant enrollment growth as well as $2.5 billion in capital construction projects and renovations. Broad's tenure at ACE has coincided with the presidential election of Barack Obama, providing an opportunity for the organization to lobby anew for its vision of an inclusive and productive American higher education system. This article presents an interview with Broad, in which she weighs in on the prospects for diversity in the Obama years.
