Making History: How SACSCOC President Belle Wheelan Is Inspiring the Next Generation of Education Leaders

This February, we’re bringing you a special series of conversations for black history month called “Making History,” highlighting black leaders in education.

Next in our Making History series is a conversation with Belle Wheelan — the President of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Before that, she served as the Secretary of Education for the state of Virginia.

Wheelan has worked in higher education for over four decades, after initially starting out studying Child Psychology. More recently, she’s also started a leadership program called “National Council on Black American Affairs”— an affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges.

Listen in to hear her conversation with EdTech Times General Manager Hannah Nyren.
