Being a more innovative and effective board member helps ensure your college or university will remain financially viable and able to deliver high-quality academic programs to Kentuckians of all ages. The Governor's Conference on Postsecondary Education Trusteeship provides the insights you need to make decisions that will boost student success, enrollment, graduation, retention and other key outcomes.
- Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will challenge listeners to rethink business models and delivery methods to create inclusive campus environments.
- Eileen Klein, president of the Arizona Board of Regents, will discuss how Arizona's strategic agenda has guided change and improvement in the state's higher education system.
- Robert L. King, president of the Council on Postsecondary Education, will provide an overview of Kentucky's new strategic agenda and performance funding model, and their associated metrics for increasing educational attainment.
Also featured on the program
