Josiah Holland graduated from the Ingram Scholars Program in 2018 and is now pursuing an M.Ed. in Leadership and Organizational Performance. As an undergraduate, Josiah primarily engaged the Nashville community through Preston Taylor Ministries where he tutored, mentored, set up field trips, recruited volunteers, fundraised, and helped launch a mini-social enterprise with several students. On campus he was a member of the Navigators campus ministry and Beta Upsilon Chi Fraternity. He majored in Human and Organizational Development (HOD) and minored in Corporate Strategy and Religious Studies. In January of 2018, while still a Senior, Josiah launched a social enterprise, XPCulture, which he hopes to turn into a full time opportunity by May of 2019 upon graduating with his Masters.
Passionate about social enterprise, Josiah spent the summer between undergrad and graduate school as a Summer Fellow with the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures. As a fellow, he continued developing the XPCulture platform, which helps NGOs protect the communities they serve from the unintended harms of short-term mission teams while also investing in the growth and development of those who go on the trips. That work and his experience with two Ingram Summer Projects spent abroad now undergird the value and structure Josiah seeks to bring to the Ingram Scholars Program as the interim Summer Program Coordinator.
