GREENSBORO, NC, UNITED STATES, January 11, 2023/ / -- Men of Color in Education Leadership (MCEL) is launching the National Leadership Institute, a one-year immersive fellowship curated around the lived experiences and identities of leaders of color. The fellowship will be centered on the organization’s core principles of Quality, Quantity, and Care.

The Institute invites men of color in educational leadership positions including School Principals, Deputy and Assistant Superintendents, Chiefs, Directors and Managers.

“I am ecstatic to see the launch of the National Leadership Institute and humbly encourage those in educational leadership to attend this fellowship and learn from some brilliant leaders and educators,” says Harrison Peters, CEO and co-founder of MCEL. “In order to increase the success of our students, we need to equip men of color in educational leadership positions with the ability to navigate their unique challenges.”


The inaugural cohort includes 24 National Fellows who identify as men of color and will provide mentorship and coaching through the ‘Cohort learning model.’ The fellowship will also include MCEL’s 360 Leadership Assessment, culturally relevant experiential learning excursions, as well as fireside chats with top leaders across the country.
