President & Ceo

Mr. Miguel A. Garcia Jr.

BIO

From his days as a National Urban Fellow, Miguel Garcia's professional journey has come full circle, leading him back to the institution that provided him with an edge. Throughout his career he has held a variety of leadership and staff roles in the corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors. His focus in the diverse areas of public policy, grantmaking, school-to-work transition, youth leadership development, and education has enabled him to evolve into an effective problem-solver with keen analytical skills.

Garcia has served on several Boards of Directors in both New York City and State and was elected as a Community School Board member in the Bronx. In addition to receiving a National Urban Fellowship, he was honored with an Institute for Educational Leadership Fellowship. However, it was as Program Officer at the Primerica Foundation, that he had a glimpse into the socio-economic demands and diversity of America.

As a way to make strides in this arena, he founded Health Opportunities High School in the Bronx, where his responsibilities included managing the curriculum, supervising faculty and support services, and fostering educational and community relationships. He was the Dean of Crisis Intervention for Special Education at DeWitt Clinton High School and an Academic Coordinator for an Entrepreneurship Honors program.

Miguel is a dedicated father, charismatic individual and a consummate role model to those who want to make enduring change.

STATEMENT FROM THE President & Ceo

"For forty four years, National Urban Fellows has developed leaders reflective of the diverse individuals, talents and backgrounds of our changing nation, and has addressed the unique leadership challenges and opportunities encountered by people of color and women.

As an innovator of leadership development and emerging thought leaders in the field, since 1969, National Urban Fellows is committed to being a catalyst for individual and systemic change to drive excellence and diversity in public service leadership. National Urban Fellows’ pursuit of organizational excellence is evidenced by our range of leadership development programs, including our MPA Fellowship Program, Alumni Program, continuing leadership programs — America’s Leaders of Change and Executive Leadership & Coaching Program, in addition to a national Public Service Leadership Diversity Initiative.

By increasing capacity and growing the visibility of the organization, National Urban Fellows is dedicated to expanding the scope and impact of our leadership development and leadership diversity initiatives. Our network of diverse leaders includes Alumni, Mentors in leadership roles in government, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, as well as a collaborative network of partner organizations across the United States. We believe that our nation needs and deserves the best leaders of excellence who reflect the diversity of America.

To that end, it is National Urban Fellows mission to develop accomplished and courageous professionals of all ethnic and racial backgrounds, particularly people of color and women, to be leaders and change agents in the public and nonprofit sectors, with a strong commitment to social justice and equity."
