The H.E.L.F. mission is to prepare principled, highly skilled, transformational leaders in higher education with an interest in assuming positions of leadership at the nation’s HBCUs.

According to Wiley College President Herman J. Felton Jr., H.E.L.F. fellows have invaluable access to and engagement with sitting and former HBCU presidents, senior HBCU administrators, HBCU thought leaders, corporate leaders and executive recruiters.
