Sellers to serve on SCICU executive committee

October 11, 2010

The South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees recently elected Dr. Cleveland L. Sellers, Jr., president of Voorhees College, to serve on the executive committee as a member at large.

In this role, Sellers will be responsible for developing new initiatives to secure additional funding for students at independent colleges.

“In these extremely difficult economic times, it is imperative that administrators find additional resources to assist students,” Sellers said. “When our students graduate from college, we do not want them to leave with a lot of debt.”   

Additionally, Sellers, along with the members of the executive committee, will also create new strategies for independent colleges to increase graduation rates.
