President of Denison University Dale T. Knobel has been elected to the board of directors of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU). The new board will be ratified in February.
NAICU serves as the national voice of independent higher education. Since 1976, the association has represented private nonprofit colleges and universities on policy issues with the federal government, such as those affecting student aid, taxation and government regulation. With more than 1,000 member institutions and associations, the NAICU reflects the diversity of private, nonprofit higher education in the United States.
Members of the NAICU’s board of directors set the association’s agenda on federal higher education policy; encourage support of NAICU priorities and initiatives; and oversee the association’s financial administration. Members of the board serve three-year terms.
“President Knobel was selected by his peers because of his expertise in the field, his proven leadership, and his commitment to America’s college students,” said NAICU President David L. Warren. “He assumes his responsibilities at a time of great challenge and transformation for American higher education.”
Denison University, founded in 1831, is an independent, residential liberal arts institution located in Granville, Ohio. A highly selective college enrolling 2,100 full-time undergraduate students from all 50 states and dozens of foreign countries, Denison is a place where innovative faculty and motivated students collaborate in rigorous scholarship, civic engagement and the cultivation of independent thinking.
