Postsecondary Education Trusteeship Conference

2021 Postsecondary Education Trusteeship Conference

Effective board leadership requires trustees and regents to respond to the challenges and opportunities facing colleges and universities today and in the future. The annual Trusteeship Conference addresses those issues and more, and provides numerous networking opportunities. 

Note from the event planners - Aug 16, 2021

The annual Postsecondary Education Trusteeship Conference is an important event for our institutional trustees, regents, and higher ed leadership. As much as we had been looking forward to being together in person, in consultation with campus presidents and others, we made the difficult decision to postpone the conference events on September 15. This is not a decision we made lightly, but one that we felt was necessary given the increasing transmission rates of COVID-19 in the state.  When it appears COVID rates are again on a decline and it looks safer to hold an in-person conference, we will announce the rescheduled dates.

The good news is that the Sept 14 sessions of The Governing Board Equity on Student Success Academy will still be held, but virtually.  This is a professional development opportunity for trustees offered by the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education and the Association of Governing Boards (AGB) to improve student retention, graduation, and employment rates – especially students from low-income, rural, and historically marginalized race/ethnicity backgrounds. The virtual event is open to all trustees and regents from public and private campuses, and you can find out more about the Academy and re-register for the September 14 sessions here:
