The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) announced that Fred DuVal, a member and former chair of the Arizona Board of Regents (AZBOR), has been elected to serve on the AGB Board of Directors—joining 19 other fellow distinguished individuals leading the association.
“Fred has demonstrated exceptional knowledge about, and commitment to, higher education governance,” said AGB President Richard D. Legon. “I’ve known him for years and have confidence he will add tremendous value to our work. We greatly appreciate his involvement and look forward to his contributions.”
As a member of the Arizona Board of Regents, DuVal serves on the Academic Affairs and Educational Attainment Committee, the Research and Health Sciences Committee, and the Audit Committee.
As chairman in 2011, DuVal enhanced the delivery model for Arizona’s public colleges and universities, improving the 2+2 pathways programs between Arizona community colleges and public universities. He previously served on the University of Arizona Hospital Board and the National Advisory Board for the University of Arizona Foundation, and was a White House deputy assistant to the president for intergovernmental affairs from 1997 to 2000. He also founded the Institute for Civil Discourse at the University of Arizona, authored two books, and ran as the Democratic nominee for governor of Arizona in 2014. DuVal received his BA from Occidental College and his JD from Arizona State University.
“Serving on the AGB board is a terrific opportunity,” said DuVal. “I’m really looking forward to representing the needs and interests of both the organization as well as member boards nationwide.”
