Message from the President & Chief Executive Officer


It is a privilege and honor to serve as the 8th President and CEO of the Columbus Urban League. I am proud to serve as the first woman to hold this position, and energized by the CUL’s ability to serve our community with such passion and excellence. 

As an Olympian and career public servant, I recognize the success we’ve had within our community. I understand our core values and relevance to Central Ohio, along with our rich heritage locally and nationally. Our exceptional team is client focused and data‐driven, with a passion for quality service delivery on behalf of our customers. This is why my mantra of excellence through teamwork, and professionalism has been fully integrated throughout our re‐aligned 21st century business model, on behalf of the families that we serve. The CUL has been and will continue to be focused on empowering communities and changing lives. This has been our tradition and I pledge that this is how we will continue to lead. 

I encourage you to learn more about the Columbus Urban League. Join us as we continue to empower our community and help to change lives! 

Yours in service, 

Stephanie A. Hightower
