Marlboro is pleased to announce that President Kevin Quigley was named to the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) by Vermont Governor Phil Scott. Marlboro is the only independent Vermont college represented on the board, which brings together leaders in education, government, and business from the six-state region.
“Marlboro is pleased to be included among the leaders on this pioneering board, which is forging partnerships and advancing ideas that enhance the economy and quality of life in the region,” said Kevin. “The college is uniquely equipped to make significant contributions in the areas of community governance, entrepreneurship, and the arts, to name just a few areas.”
“Marlboro is well-known for its intensive focus on community and a Vermont-style Town Meeting that provides the community with a role in the college’s governance,” said NEBHE President and CEO Michael K. Thomas. “We are eager to draw on President Quigley’s thoughtful experience that is both global and reflective of unique and inclusive New England values.”
Established in 1955 by six visionary New England governors and authorized by the U.S. Congress, NEBHE works across the region to help leaders assess, develop, and implement education practices and policies of regional significance. The compact promotes regional cooperation and programs that encourage efficient sharing of educational resources and strengthens the relationship between higher education and the New England economy.
Each New England state is represented be eight delegates to NEBHE. Other Vermont delegates are: Christopher Bray, state senator; Joyce M. Judy, CCV president; Alice Miller, state representative; Jeb Spaulding, Vermont State Colleges chancellor; Thomas Sullivan, UVM president; and Michael Wool, a Burlington lawyer.
