Orientation set for new college board members

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — New members of Virginia public universities’ governing boards are learning the ropes this week.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia is conducting its orientation for recent appointees Tuesday and Wednesday. State law requires new board members to attend orientation within two years of their appointment.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe is scheduled to address new board members Tuesday afternoon. Other speakers and panel discussions on higher education affordability, best practices, board members’ legal responsibilities, campus sexual violence, and leadership are set for Wednesday.
