Targeted Research and Support on Important Issues.
AGB promotes progress and results for governing boards through a variety of ongoing projects—analyzing and addressing key higher education topics in depth. Supported by sponsors and partners, these dedicated special initiatives increase institutional leaders’ capacity to address strategic priorities and tackle critical needs.
As college completion becomes a national priority, board members must make student success and degree attainment a board priority as well.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) serve our nation through their important missions. Like all institutions, they face many challenges that demand high performing boards and effective leaders.
One of the most important functions of a governing board is to ensure the institution’s financial health allows it to carry out its mission. Campus-based financial aid has become one of the largest expenditures for many colleges and universities.
