Board of Governors to Meet at UConn

HARTFORD, April 13 - The state Board of Governors for Higher Education invites members of the UConn community and public to its meeting on Wednesday, April 26, at the University of Connecticut in Storrs for a conversation about its priorities and mission.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am. in the Rome Commons Ballroom in the South Campus Complex. The public is invited to offer comments at the beginning of the session.

The Board of Governors is Connecticut’s coordinating and planning authority for colleges and universities. Its major duties are to:

  • evaluate and approve all academic programs and institutions to assure educational offerings are of the highest quality for students.
  • review public college and university budgets, tuitions and expenditures to promote the most efficient use of taxpayer dollars.
  • advocate on behalf of higher education’s interests and serve as the state’s "information agent" on issues of concern to the public.

Recently, the Board of Governor adopted five priorities to guide its work. These are to:

  • identify the distinct roles of each public college and university system so that each system complements and does not duplicate the others.
  • evaluate how well each system performs on certain measures such as educating students, ensuring affordability, and promoting economic growth.
  • promote technology-based learning to expand college opportunities for students.
  • examine remedial activity on campuses, and identify best practices for teaching and learning.
  • Assure that higher education’s programs and services are addressing current needs .

Members of the Board of Governors are: Albert B. Vertefeuille of Lebanon, Chair; Harry H. Penner, Jr., Vice-Chair; James H. Bates, Lakeville; William A. Bevacqua, Trumbull; Dorothea E. Brennan, Fairfield; Leonard S. Cohen, West Hartford; Lile R. Gibbons, Greenwich; Joan R. Kemler, West Hartford; Dorothy B. Leib, New London; Alice V. Meyer, Easton; and Patricia McCann Vissepó, New Haven.
