President of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities to Speak on Challenges and Trends in Higher Education
The University Planning Council invites you to join us on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 3:30 p.m. in Bisgrove 350/351 as Laura Anglin, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities (cIcu), addresses the trends and challenges facing independent colleges and universities in New York State. The cIcu represents over 100 of New York’s independent colleges and universities on issues of public policy.
Ms. Anglin is the seventh president of cIcu, having most recently served as New York State’s budget director under Governor David A. Paterson, after being appointed to that position in 2008 by Governor Eliot Spitzer. She also served as first deputy budget director in 2007.
Ms. Anglin’s career in public service spans more than 20 years, and includes leadership roles in fiscal management, public policy, economic analysis, and public administration. During her career, she has played a central policy-making role in a broad range of policy areas, including education, higher education, transportation, taxation, the environment, public protection and more.
This forum will provide an important opportunity to hear of the current issues facing higher education from a leading advocate of the independent sector of higher education.
