Hollins University President Mary Dana Hinton has been elected chair of the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Board of Directors.
“I’m so grateful to the extraordinary group of higher education leaders who serve on the AAC&U Board of Directors,” said AAC&U President Lynn Pasquerella. “I look forward to working with and learning from this year’s board members as we strive toward our shared objective of advancing the vitality and public standing of liberal education by making quality and equity the foundations for excellence in undergraduate education in service to democracy.”
The AAC&U supports the educational mission of colleges and universities across the global landscape of higher education and partners with campus leaders and educators at all levels. Founded in 1915, its vision of educational excellence is focused on the learning all students need for success in an uncertain future and for addressing the compelling issues faced by democracies and global communities—regardless of where they study, what they major in, or what their career goals may be.
