Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
The Association of Governing Boards (AGB) of Universities and Colleges is a national association with a mission to strengthen, protect and advocate on behalf of citizen trusteeship in higher education. This two-year grant supports AGB and AGB Institutional Strategies (AGBIS), a business model consulting auxiliary, to do strategic business model and leadership consulting with a cohort of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The project will engage up to four HBCUs and will work with their unique circumstances to find new or expanded programs that address changing market needs. AGBIS will identify new revenue opportunities, provide leadership coaching to presidents and board chairs through the implementation process, and document the process as a roadmap for future work with HBCUs.
