50 Years of Public Policy at Duke - Michael Sorrell

Michael Sorrell is president of Paul Quinn College, and he has turned the historically black institution in Dallas into what he calls “an engine of social mobility.”

He became president of Paul Quinn in 2007. At the time there were more than a dozen abandoned buildings on campus. Michael Sorrell has since been named HBCU President of the Year three times for his contributions to higher education, and this year he was named to Fortune’s List of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.
