Kalamazoo College has chosen the new head of its Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership: Mia Henry will become executive director of the center, the first of its kind in higher education, on Aug. 11.
Henry's appointment, announced Monday, came after a national search, the college said.
"We are thrilled to welcome Mia Henry to Kalamazoo College," said Kalamazoo College President Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran in a statement. "She is a strategic, thoughtful leader with wide experience in social justice, education and leadership development. She's served as an executive, educator, entrepreneur, and supervisor. I'm convinced she will help us build on the multifaceted collaborative efforts that have helped shape K's social justice leadership center into the first of its kind in higher education."
