VP for Student Success Selected to Attend Prestigious Executive Leadership Institute

November 18, 2020

St. Philip’s College (SPC) Vice President for Student Success,  Dr. Mordecai Ian Brownlee, was selected by a panel of national community college leaders to participate in the Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) sponsored by the League for Innovation in the Community College. ELI provides an opportunity for prospective community college presidents, or those in transition, to analyze their abilities, reflect on their interests, refine their skills, and engage in leadership discussions with an unparalleled faculty of community college leaders from across North America.

“I am immensely grateful to (SPC) President Dr. Adena Williams Loston for this amazing growth opportunity,” said Dr. Brownlee. “Through Dr. Loston’s leadership and mentorship, I have learned first-hand how to advance the institutional mission and the significance of creating academic pathways that empower the lives of the students we serve.” 

As the vice president for student success, Dr. Brownlee is primarily responsible for all student onboarding, matriculation services, support systems and completion agendas. Since joining the St. Philip’s College executive team four years ago, St. Philip’s has experienced its highest enrollment, student success metric performance and program completion in its 122-year history.

“Dr. Brownlee is a highly motivated individual and inspires his team to pursue performance excellence in all initiatives,” said Dr. Loston. “Mordecai serves as a champion for this institution and collaborates effectively with his fellow vice presidents to ensure that our student completion agenda is achieved.” 

The Institute, which is being offered virtually due to COVID-19, will take place December 13-17, 2020, and January 26-28, 2021. This is ELI’s 32nd year preparing senior-level community college administrators to successfully fill presidential roles.
