Dr. Commodore is quoted in The Washington Post article titled “The wave of college presidential departures hits HBCUs” 

In this article, Dr. Commodore provides commentary about presidential departures at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. She discussed the need for more research about Black women presidents leaving HBCUs early in their tenure. Dr. Commodore said this trend is not a new phenomenon but still warrants further exploration into why women are heading for the door. She noted that historically Black schools typically appoint more women as presidents than the rest of higher education. “If this is a space where Black women have probably the best shot at a college presidency and they’re not lasting for more than three to five years, what message is that sending to the pipeline of aspiring Black women college presidents, particularly those who are interested in serving in the HBCU sector?” Commodore said.
