For our meeting Monday July 13th 2020, we welcome Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, President of Benedict College.

Dr. Linda Bell

In 2017, Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis became the 14th and first-female President in the 147-year history of Benedict College. Dr. Artis came to Benedict College from Florida Memorial University in Miami where she served for four years as the 13th and first female President in that University’s 138-year history.

Intentional, professional and thoroughly committed to the proliferation and transformation of colleges and universities that serve underrepresented men and women of color, Dr. Artis brings a depth of knowledge in higher education and enthusiasm for students’ success that is unmatched in today’s higher education arena. She has led a remarkable institutional transformation that included lowering tuition, increasing academic standards, stabilizing the institution’s financial position, streamlining academic degree programs and upgrading the institution’s technology infrastructure. These efforts resulted in Benedict College receiving the 2019 ACE/Fidelity Investments Institutional Transformation Award. In August 2019, Benedict College was recognized as “HBCU of the Year” by the HBCU Digest.

A prolific speaker, critical thinker and fierce advocate for educational access, Dr. Artis has been recognized for her work locally and nationally and is frequently engaged as a mentor, lecturer, and catalyst for strategic transformation.
