The state Board of Higher Education is on-record, asking to have representation on the Governor’s Task Force on Higher Education Governance.
That task force will begin its meetings in December.
"There needs to be some connection from the Board to this group, so they understand what is already being done (on governance)," said Board member Dr. Casey Ryan. "The task force may have a lot of ideas, but may not realize that 'Hey, this has been going on for 10 years.'"
Ryan said there has to be some representation -- either ex-officio or as voting members.
