The Presidential Fellowship Program is a new, yearlong fellowship to prepare leaders to answer the call to the Christian college presidency. Each year, the CCCU will select one to three individuals for the fellowship who currently serve or have previously served as CCCU commissioners and who demonstrate exceptional strength of character, competence and leadership potential. 

During the one-year fellowship program, Presidential Fellows will access numerous opportunities for professional development, leadership development and networking.

“On behalf of the JBU community, I want to congratulate Dr. Ted Song for being named an inaugural CCCU Presidential Fellow,” said JBU President Chip Pollard. “We know of Ted’s excellence and faithfulness, not only to the mission here at JBU but also to other institutions in the CCCU, and we are grateful for this opportunity for him to grow in his leadership.”
