Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe Named to American Council on Education Board of Directors

mcauliffe-1Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe was named to the board of directors of the American Council on Education (ACE) at the group’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., earlier this month.

“It’s an honor to be named to the board of ACE, an organization committed to fostering collaboration across the higher-education spectrum,” says McAuliffe. “From community colleges to sprawling state campuses and the most highly selective small colleges, we as educators have much to learn from one another, and in today’s challenging economic environment it’s crucial that we all stand together in advocating for and highlighting the value of  higher education.”

Founded in 1918, ACE is the only higher-education organization that represents presidents and chancellors of all types of accredited, degree-granting institutions in the United States: community colleges and four-year institutions, private and public universities, and nonprofit and for-profit colleges. ACE represents the interests of more than 1,600 campus executives, as well as 200 leaders of higher-education-related associations and organizations. Together, ACE member institutions serve 80 percent of today’s college students.

McAuliffe will serve on the board until March 2014. In October she was named to ACE’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement.

Miami Dade College President Eduardo J. Padrón was named chair of the board at the meeting, and Northeastern University President Joseph E. Aoun was elected vice chair.
