GREGORY ADAM HAILE
PRESIDENT, BROWARD COLLEGE, FORT LAUDERDALE
Broward College has been recognized by the Aspen Institute as one of the top 10 community and state colleges in the U.S. The school, with about 4,000 employees, serves 60,000 students. Through an effort called Broward UP, the school has added more than 15 locations (via no-cost facilities partnerships) in communities with high unemployment rates and post-secondary attainment rates. Haile, who attended a high school that was among the first 40 schools in New York City to require metal detectors, is the first in his family to graduate from college.
