Board Forum - June 7, 2012

The Coordinating Board for Higher Education seeks to understand the perspectives of local institutional governing boards in order to foster collaboration, quality, accountability and efficiency in the state’s system of higher education. Representatives of local governing boards can benefit from exchanges with their counterparts from around the state and with statewide higher education officials. Discussions of mutual issues will result in better understanding and enhanced ability to affect positive change in higher education.

The CBHE hosted a first of its kind conference on June 7, 2012, at the Courtyard by Marriott Columbia, to bring together representatives from local governing boards, state and national experts and elected officials. Objectives of the conference were to provide opportunities to:

  • Build relationships with colleagues and experts in the field of higher education
  • Learn about the broader perspective of the Missouri higher education system and how individual institutions fit within it
  • Develop an understanding of the common challenges faced by all higher education institutions
  • Develop a better understanding of how boards contribute to institutional and education systems success
