UDC ADMINISTRATOR SELECTED FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IN HIGHER EDUCATION
National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) 2018-19 Fellows
Washington, DC – The University of The District of Columbia (UDC) is pleased to announce the acceptance of David Franklin, Deputy Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of Finance, into the prestigious National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) 2018-19 Fellows Program, a one-year professional development opportunity for a small cohort of promising higher education leaders in business and finance.
The NACUBO Fellows Program is an intensive year of development for higher education professionals who aspire to be chief business officers in their next roles. NACUBO Fellows work together and with higher education presidents, provosts, and chief business officers (CBOs) to deepen their knowledge of business management, institutional communications, and the expanding role of the CBO on campus. They also evaluate and enhance their leadership skills as they learn the core competencies needed to succeed as CBOs. Mr. Franklin is among 11 higher education professionals selected for this opportunity.
“The NACUBO Fellows Program is a unique opportunity to learn the complexities of the chief business officer role in a supportive and close-knit setting,” said Marta Perez Drake, senior vice president of education, development and membership at NACUBO. “We are thrilled to include Mr. Franklin among another group of impressive, ambitious leaders and to help prepare them to lead colleges and universities with confidence and aplomb.”
Founded in 1962, NACUBO is a nonprofit professional organization representing chief administrative and financial officers at more than 1,900 colleges and universities across the country. NACUBO works to advance the economic vitality, business practices, and support of higher education institutions in pursuit of their missions.
“It is my honor to represent the University of the District of Columbia in the NACUBO Fellows Program,” said Franklin. “UDC, the only public institution of higher learning in the nation’s capital, is always eager to discover new ways of delivering academic excellence. We are pleased to share secrets of our success as we strive to help more D.C. residents find their footing on pathways to the middle class. I look forward to interacting with executive business leaders at other innovative colleges and universities.”
The NACUBO Fellows cohort will kick off the year in July at the NACUBO 2018 Annual Meeting in Long Beach, CA.
