In today’s higher education landscape, the role of the Board of Trustees is becoming increasingly integral to the success of a thriving, independent institution. Board Engagement services assess the Board’s current reality, gather their input on priorities and processes, and provide either Board Development or Board Education, depending on the unique needs of your institution.
Following fact finding and a Board assessment, Credo senior consultants will meet with you for a one-and-one-half-day retreat. We will customize an agenda for your Board around strategic priorities, enabling your board to best support and empower your institution and the success of your campus community. The culmination of your retreat is the creation of a collaborative Action Plan for future success.
Benefits of Credo Board Development include:
Does your Board engage in consistent, meaningful education for the betterment of your institution? Is your Board fully informed about relevant, specific topics for the purpose of efficient, efficacious governance?
Credo’s Board Education service sets up your Board for success by building a customized curriculum around topics, themes, and questions most relevant to your campus community. Our challenge is to help your Board think differently about higher education and the specific issues inherent to your institution. Credo can provide resources for one plenary session, or we can work with you to create several sessions to be delivered over time on a common theme. Coming out of these services, your Board will benefit from having aligned knowledge with the administration to better serve the institution.
Educational topics include: the Thriving Framework, higher education trends, institutional change and change readiness, strategic planning, enrollment, student success and retention, facility master planning approaches, and more.
Benefits of Board Education include:
Having the right partner at the table can be a game changer. We’d love to talk to you about how we can help your campus to flourish.
