Dr. John Porter Joins AGB Council of Presidents

Lindenwood University today announced that University President Dr. John Porter has been appointed to the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) Council of Presidents. The council leverages the experience, perspectives, and insights of its members with active leadership roles for the development of AGB expertise designed to strengthen strategic board governance across higher education.

Porter accepted the opportunity to serve on the Council of Presidents because of his passion for higher education, focus on teamwork, and commitment to disruptive innovation in the higher ed sector.

The AGB Council of Presidents regularly convenes to discuss the strategic priorities across higher education and includes representatives from a range of institutional types, including public and private, large and small, single institution and multi-campus system, two- and four-year, religious and secular, and domestic and international. This diversity affords the group a broad pool of experiences that help inform AGB about the obstacles and macro-level trends that governing boards face. In turn, AGB leverages its advisory groups to create tools and resources that benefit over 2,000 institutions and 40,000 members.

“I am honored to join this group of distinguished colleagues who are making a profound impact in higher education,” said Porter. “Higher education is facing unprecedented challenges and requires the collaboration of dedicated individuals to achieve great things. I am eager to serve alongside talented professionals to advance the mission of many great institutions.”

The Council of Presidents is one of seven councils that enhance AGB’s thought leadership. The other six councils similarly represent key leadership roles and priority areas: Board Chairs, Board Professionals, Finance Committee Chairs, Foundation Leaders, Senior Fellows, and Student Success.

“Our council members generously agree to lend their time and talent to advancing strategic governance across higher education,” said Henry Stoever, AGB president and CEO. “Alongside the AGB Board of Directors, AGB consultants, and other board governance experts, the AGB Council of Presidents ensures that boards across the country are receiving leading and practical guidance on salient topics throughout the year. These council members help to ensure that we are aware of not only what’s going on at that moment but also what they need to know from AGB to lead with confidence and knowledge in the boardroom. It’s a crucial partnership, and I appreciate their hard work.”
