Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program

BLF Library


The Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program partners with campus and community leaders, university alumni and program supporters that will enhance the leadership lessons and principles developed over time within our community. BLF provides these recommendations to the university community to continue to build growth and development on your leadership journey!


“One of the first things I think young people, especially nowadays, should learn is how to see for yourself and listen for yourself and think for yourself.” ~ Malcolm X.

This month’s recommendations serve to provide resources and additional education to the university community that provide insight into racism, inequity, injustice and their negative impact on the Black community in the U.S.

We face multiple crises in our community in the form of a pandemic, racism as a public health crisis and police brutality. As many students, staff and faculty have come together to amplify the voices of the silenced and fight against injustice, we are committed to the continuous education necessary to listen, inform, support and act. When we think of leading with edge, leading with significance and leading to influence – this is how we begin.

Join us as we explore critical readings and literature that illuminates the Black experience.
