From Concept to Institutional Action:
A College-Wide Approach to Global Learning
Excellence Through Leadership Program
In 1996, Hillsborough Community College created a formal commitment to establish the
Excellence through Leadership (EXCEL) Program. The purpose of EXCEL is to strengthen
the professional preparation of women and minorities for leadership positions in the Florida
institutions of higher education. EXCEL creates an environment for individuals to hone their
professional and personal skills, and benefit from networking and mentoring.
