LSUS, SHREVEPORT, LA--Dr. Kenna Morgan Franklin, Director of Multicultural Affairs at Louisiana State University Shreveport, is one of only 36 college leaders selected by a national review panel to attend the prestigious Executive Leadership Institute sponsored by the League for Innovation in the Community College. The 36 participants hold senior-level leadership positions in both senior institutions and community colleges throughout the United States.

Gerardo E. de los Santos, president and CEO of the League for Innovation, said, "The review panel was extremely impressed with the quality of the applicants, which speaks well for the future vitality of the educational enterprise."

The institute, to be held in Phoenix, Ariz. Dec. 13-17, provides an opportunity for potential college presidents or those in transition to review their abilities and interests, to refine their skills, and to participate in discussions on leadership with an outstanding array of faculty drawn from among nationally and internationally recognized college leaders. These include community college chief executive officers, experts in leadership development, community college trustees, presidential search consultants, members of the League for Innovation board of directors and other prominent figures.

This is the Executive Leadership Institute's 27th year preparing senior-level college administrators to successfully fill the presidential role.

The League is an international association dedicated since 1968 to catalyzing the community college movement. The League hosts conferences and institutes, develops web resources, conducts research, produces publications, provides services, and leads projects and initiatives with member colleges, corporate partners, and other agencies in a continuing effort to make a positive difference for students and communities.
