Institute for Board Chairs and Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities (Aspen)
June 18 - 20, 2018
AGB's Institute for Board Chairs and Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities allows chair-president teams to develop robust partnerships and create a focused agenda that moves both the board and the institution forward. Since 1985, nearly 900 teams have participated in the institute and have found it essential to effective governance at their institutions. As a result of this institute, board chairs and presidents will strengthen their relationship, find answers to emerging challenges, and develop an action agenda for the board.
Facilitated group sessions provide best practices in governance and effective strategies from other institutions, while president-chair team meetings and one-on-one consultations allow participants to focus on shared work at their own institutions.
By participating in this institute, participants will:
Enjoy highly engaging small-group sessions with higher education experts to discuss key trends and best practices in governance;
Develop an action agenda for improving board practice and advancing their institutions;
Participate in one-on-one consultations to focus on shared work at their institutions and assess the strength of their boards; and
Engage with a network of peers to learn from and draw upon after the institute concludes.
The registration fee for the institute is $8,475 per two-member team.
The registration fee includes program expenses for both the board chair and the president, private lodging for two nights, meals during the Institute, and program materials.
This program is available only to board chairs and presidents of independent institutions that are members of AGB.
Due to the intensive nature of the Institute, spouses and families are not included in the program. The curriculum is designed with a strong emphasis on developing the chair-president relationship through private interaction and collaboration; it makes full use of the participants' time throughout the three-day meeting. AGB appreciates this commitment from all participants. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
