THE STORY:

The fundraising goal is to further enhance the mission of The Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute. The Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute promotes the development of current and emerging leaders in communities; nonprofit organizations; businesses, public and private; and academic institutions. The Institute’s programs mirror the spirit of collaboration and partnership modeled by Dr. Harris, “Our society has a deep need for visionary leaders who work in concert with others to get results, inspire people to grow and change, and transform organizations”. To this end, the Institute intentionally directs its efforts towards increasing individual, organization, community, and institutional capacity for leadership by inspiring and promoting the leadership advancement of diverse individuals with the ultimate goal of achieving full leadership participation. The Institute accomplishes its goals through its four leadership programs: the HIGHER Ground Women’s Leadership Development Program, the Minority Political Leadership Institute, VCU Leadership Development Program, and the Department Chairs Certification Program. Other unique features of the Institute include its strong theoretical grounding in the concept of transformational leadership and its focus on community and academic leadership. Housed in the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs, The Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute was established in May 1999, by the Virginia Commonwealth University Board of Visitors in recognition of Dr. Harris upon her retirement from the position of Provost and Vice-President for Academic Affairs. Harris served the university for nearly 50 years and was the highest ranking African-American woman in VCU’s history.
