MISENHEIMER — Dr. Colleen Perry Keith, president of Pfeiffer University, has been elected to the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Board of Directors.

Keith will serve a three-year term from January 2017 to January 2020. The elections were held during a meeting of the Board of Directors at the council’s 2017 Presidents Institute in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 4.

The council is the only national higher education association that focuses solely on providing services and a broad range of initiatives directly to independent colleges and universities to help improve the quality of education and strengthen institutional resources.

“The council is pleased to have Dr. Keith as a Board member,” said CIC President Richard Ekman. “CIC continues to implement many new programs, projects, and services and needs a strong Board of Directors to oversee their planning and execution. I am certain that Dr. Keith will serve the council admirably, and I look forward to working with her.”

Keith said she was happy to serve.

“Pfeiffer is proud to be a longtime member of CIC, which for more than six decades has been regarded as the nation’s foremost organization focusing its work to improve independent higher education,” Keith said. “With the opportunity to serve on this board, I am pleased to represent Pfeiffer as national issues that impact our sector are discussed as well as to help promote the value of a private liberal arts education.”
