Governing Board Development Program
The program which is highly customizable to institutions is designed to enable members of Governing Bodies (Board of Governors/ Trustees, Board of Directors, etc.) from both private and public universities to increase their knowledge and understanding of their roles and responsibilities and how they can guide, support and evaluate their institution effectively and efficiently. The program provides participants with a generic overview of the context of governance in higher education, the different governance models and frameworks available, the principles of good governance and the most common challenges and issues encountering good and participatory governance. Roles, responsibilities and obligations of various governing bodies in the context of the institution and external regulators will be discussed and how these support some of the key functions of the institution such as: strategy formation, budget reviews and approval, institutional effectiveness, risk management, etc. The program concludes by addressing the key criteria for successful Boards’, and presents some insights into different frameworks that can be used to evaluate Board’s effectiveness.
The program structure is designed to provide plenty of opportunities for participants to learn from one another and share experiences through group activities.
This program intended at Governing Board members from either public or private Higher Education Institutions as well as members of the Executive Management.
