Since 1986, the American Council on Education’s (ACE) American College President Study (ACPS) has offered the most comprehensive look into college presidency in the U.S. The results of the eagerly-anticipated latest study offer myriad insights about higher education leadership, and especially the role and experiences of presidents and chancellors. In this session, ACE and AGB experts will explain top findings and discuss implications for governing boards. Namely, the audience will learn about:
- Anticipated turnovers among college and university chief executives in the next five years;
- Insights into search, on-boarding, and support experience from sitting presidents; and
- Opportunities for governing boards to play roles toward more diverse and inclusive college presidency.
