Jischke chairs national higher education association

President Martin Jischke was selected chair of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) at the association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., this week. Jischke will serve as NASULGC chair until November 1998.

Jischke has served in a number of leadership roles at NASULGC, including chair of the association's Council of Presidents and chair-elect of the association. He also is a member of NASULGC's Kellogg Commission on the Future of State and Land-Grant Universities, heading its Subcommittee on Engaged Institutions, which will produce a report in late 1998. The Kellogg Commission was established last year by NASULGC, with a $1.2 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to refocus public higher education for the 21st century. The commission published its first report, "Returning to Our Roots: The Student Experience," in 1997. The report from Jischke's group will be the third in a series of five commission reports expected to be completed over the next two years.

Founded in 1887, NASULGC is the nation's oldest higher education association. A voluntary association of public research universities, land-grant institutions and many state university systems, NASULGC represents 195 institutions located in all 50 states, the U. S. territories and the District of Columbia.
