The College Board

Past Partner
Logo The College Board
The College Board is committed to serving America’s community colleges. In 1997, the College Board created the Office of Community College Relations to oversee efforts to reach out to community colleges. In doing so, the College Board also appointed a Community College Advisory Panel composed of distinguished community college educators to provide ongoing advice to the association about the needs and concerns of community colleges.The College Board has conducted a variety of activities to provide greater depth, focus, and sensitivity to understanding community colleges. A comprehensive audit of College Board publications to assess references to community colleges, a major modification to the College Board’s Annual Survey of Colleges, a national survey of assessment and guidance needs and the introduction of ACCUPLACER Online, a state of the art Internet-based placement testing system, are just a few new developments. The College Board’s Office of Governmental Relations in Washington consults regularly with the Board’s Community College Advisory Panel on federal and state legislative issues and seeks the input of members in developing legislative positions and priorities. The office, working with the Office of Community College Relations, sponsored a regional conference and issued a report of findings on performance-based funding. Further, the Board’s Government Relations Advisory Panel includes community college perspectives by counting community college leaders among its members.
