The American Council on Education (ACE) has reelected ARL executive director Elliott Shore to serve as a higher education association representative to the ACE Board of Directors for a one-year term ending in March 2016. This will be Shore’s second consecutive year in this role, which strengthens ARL’s leadership in strategic conversations about higher education.
Founded in 1918, ACE is the major coordinating body for all the nation’s higher education institutions, representing more than 1,600 college and university presidents, and more than 200 related associations, nationwide. ACE provides leadership on key higher education issues and influences public policy through advocacy. The ACE Board of Directors is primarily composed of presidents and chancellors of colleges and universities, including several ARL institutions.
“The ACE Board of Directors oversees the Council’s work as we advocate on behalf of the entire higher education community, help develop and expand the pipeline of future campus leaders, and provide our members with the information they need to turn challenges into opportunities,” said ACE president Molly Corbett Broad. “We are pleased that Executive Director Shore has been elected to a second one-year term on the Board, and appreciate his continued commitment to helping guide the work of ACE in the coming year.”
