This article presents a conversation with three women college leaders on how their respective Ohio colleges are faring in the economy, leadership and what tops their presidential agendas these days. Patricia L. Hardaway was appointed president of Wilberforce University in April 2008. An attorney and graduate of the historically Black university, Hardaway and her administrative team are focusing much of their attention on student retention, and they're seeing positive results. Dr. Debra L. McCurdy, president, James A. Rhodes State College in Lima, is presiding over a college that has experienced significant enrollment growth since she arrived in 2006. She attributes that growth to the college's outreach efforts and the economy. Dr. Jerry Sue Thornton, president, Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, heads the largest and the oldest community college in Ohio. Tri-C, as Cuyahoga is also known, is experiencing tremendous student growth, hitting a record-high enrollment last year of more than 30,000 students across its three campuses.
