Dr Melvin C Terrell

BIO

Dr. Melvin Cleveland Terrell earned his B.S.Ed. Degree (1971) in History and Secondary Education from Chicago State University and his M.Ed. (1974) in College Student Personnel from Loyola University (Chicago). Dr. Terrell is a life member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and was the chair of the Education committee in Toledo, OH from 1986-1988. He received his Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration and Black Studies from Southern Illinois University--Carbondale (1978) and he has continued postdoctoral studies at Harvard University and the University of Virginia. Dr. Terrell initiated his career in higher education, first at Kennedy-King College, then at Eastern New Mexico University, Chicago State University, the University of Arkansas at Monticello, University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh, University of Toledo, and finally at Northeastern Illinois University.

His 20 plus years as a Vice President of Student Affairs, still stands as the longest tenure for an African American in that position at a predominantly White institution. During Dr. Terrell's tenure as Vice President for Student Affairs at Northeastern Illinois University, he concurrently managed an extremely full and fulfilling life at the University, also serving as president of the Illinois Committee on Black Concerns in Higher Education, and the American Association of Higher Education's Black Caucus Executive Board and director of the American College Personnel Association Core Council for Professionals Issues. His personal mantra is “attaining excellence while maintaining balance."

Since his days as a trail blazing early career professional, who secured a senior-level leadership role and a PhD prior to the age of 30, Dr. Terrell set the benchmark for the Black male professional in higher education. He has immeasurably impacted the diversity in the field of student affairs through his work and commitment with the NASPA Minority Undergraduate Mentoring Program. He has provided 40 years of provided to Black males in education producing: College Presidents, Vice Presidents, Deans of Students, Senior Leaders in Student Affairs, and Endowed Professors to name a few.

One of the leading names in student affairs scholarship and practice today, Dr. Terrell has authored more than 30 publications including monographs, book chapters, and articles in refereed journals. This includes countless publications on topics such as mentoring, cultural diversity, student development in higher education, and current trends in higher education. In 2002, he co-authored the groundbreaking book, How Minority Students Experience College: Implication for Planning and Policy.

Dr. Terrell's life's work has been centered on better understanding and developing innovative practices and strategies to enhance the lives of college students. Over the past twenty years, his primary goals have been to serve as a vocal advocate for students, as a contributing colleague to faculty, and as a proactive leader.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
