Wednesday, December 15, 2021
Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) is pleased to share the announcement of Dr. R. Kelly Cameron, BHCC Board of Trustees member, on the appointment to the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) Council for Student Success. Established in 2021, the Council leverages the experience, perspectives, and insights of its members with active leadership roles to develop AGB expertise designed to strengthen strategic board governance across higher education.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to serve on the Council for Student Success,” said BHCC Trustee Dr. Cameron, “It is imperative that we address collectively the challenges that face higher education and look forward to beginning this work.”
The AGB Council for Student Success regularly convenes to discuss the strategic priorities across higher education. It includes representatives from various institutional types, including public and private, large and small, single-institution and multi-campus system, two- and four-year, religious and secular, and domestic and international. This diversity affords the group a broad pool of experiences that help inform AGB about the obstacles and macro-level trends that governing boards face. In turn, AGB leverages its advisory groups to create tools and resources that benefit over 2,000 institutions and 40,000 members.
Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) congratulates Dr. Cameron for his distinguished appointment to the AGB,” said Pam Eddinger, President of BHCC. “His expertise and acumen in higher education along with his continued support of student success will strengthen AGB’s vision, mission, and values.”
The Council for Student Success is one of seven councils that enhance AGB’s thought leadership. The other six councils similarly represent key leadership roles and priority areas: Board Chairs, Board Professionals, Finance Committee Chairs, Foundation Leaders, Presidents, and Senior Fellows.
“Our council members generously agree to lend their time and talent to advancing strategic governance across higher education,” said Henry Stoever, AGB president and CEO. “Alongside the AGB Board of Directors, AGB consultants, and other board governance experts, the AGB Council for Student Success ensures that boards across the country are receiving leading and practical guidance on salient topics throughout the year. These council members help to ensure that we are aware of not only what’s going on at that moment but also what they need to know from AGB to lead with confidence and knowledge in the boardroom. It’s a crucial partnership, and I appreciate their hard work.”
The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) is the premier membership organization that strengthens higher education governing boards and the strategic roles they serve within their organizations. Through our vast library of resources, educational events, and consulting services, and with 100 years of experience, we empower 40,000 AGB members from more than 2,000 institutions and foundations to navigate complex issues, implement leading practices, streamline operations, and govern with confidence.
