AUCC Welcomes Helene D. Gayle, M.D.,MPH, 11th president of Spelman College

The Atlanta University Center Consortium welcomes Dr. Helen Gayle, M.D., MPH. as 11th president of Spelman College. According to Spelman College, Dr. Gayle most recently served as president and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust, one of the nation’s oldest and largest community foundations.

She is a proven executive who is credited with numerous accomplishments at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and CARE.

A pediatrician and public health expert, with a career dedicated to eradicating inequities in health and wealth, Dr. Gayle’s appointment is timely. Her life’s work in underserved communities, empowering women, and growing the capacity of well-known mission-driven institutions is inspiring.

Dr. Gayle succeeds Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D., a celebrated leader who successfully completed her seven-year tenure as Spelman’s 10th president.

We join the Spelman family in welcoming Dr. Gayle back to Atlanta as she prepares to collaborate with crucial partners, explore our cultures and traditions, identify strategic priorities, address critical issues and forge new opportunities for the College.
