CLEVELAND, Miss. — Kelvin Davis, Delta State University’s comptroller, has been selected as a member of the 2023-24 cohort of the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) Fellows Program. Founded in 1962, NACUBO is a nonprofit professional organization representing chief administrative and financial officers at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the country.
The immersive leadership development program trains higher education professionals who are seeking a chief business officer (CBO) role.
Davis said, “I am beyond thrilled and honored to embark on an exhilarating journey as a participant in the prestigious 2023-24 NACUBO Fellows Program. This remarkable opportunity fills me with a sense of excitement, as I eagerly anticipate the profound growth, invaluable connections, and transformative experiences that lie ahead. As a NACUBO Fellow, I am poised to make a lasting impact, enriching both my professional trajectory and the institution I serve.”
Over the next year, NACUBO Fellows will work with higher education presidents, provosts, CBOs, and other experts as they expand their management, communications, and leadership skills and strengthen the core competencies needed to succeed as senior leaders.
The NACUBO Fellows Program launched in 2016, and many graduates now hold senior leadership roles.
“At NACUBO, we’ve doubled down on our efforts to strengthen the strategic leadership capabilities of business officers and their teams, and the NACUBO Fellows Program is a shining example of success in that area,” said Randy Roberson, NACUBO’s vice president of leadership development. “We are so proud to welcome this cohort of future chief business officers and look forward to helping them finetune their leadership skills.”
