21. Roslyn Artis NEW

Since taking over as president of Benedict College in 2017, Artis has made sweeping changes at Columbia’s most prominent historically black college. In an era when many schools are expanding enrollment in a desperate attempt to stay financially afloat, Artis has cut enrollment and raised admission standards to achieve the same ends. She’s ruffled feathers, too, eliminating “underperforming” majors and laying off administrative staff. But it’s indisputable that she’s out to save Benedict, and raise its profile in the process. That means a lot for Columbia.
