CBE and MPK&D Launch the Higher Education Assessment Platform

The Center for Board Excellence (CBE), a leading provider of governance solutions, and MPK&D Partners, noted higher education consulting experts, announced today a unique partnership for comprehensive board evaluation and leadership consulting services to higher education. CBE and MPK&D have developed a portfolio of leadership and board assessment products and solutions designed specifically to address critical issues affecting governance in higher education today.

“Higher Education faces greater challenges now than ever before,” said Kent John Chabotar, MPK&D founding partner and president emeritus of Guilford College. “The governing boards and leaders of these institutions need tools to help align the institution’s mission with the requisite leadership characteristics, while also assessing their own performance. This partnership brings to potential clients CBE’s extensive experience with best practices in business and other organizations with MPK&D’s knowledge of the culture and processes of higher education including faculty governance.”

The new Higher Education Assessment Platform combines CBE’s international expertise in creating effective assessments for governing boards of entities and organizations with MPK&D’s higher education strategy and leadership experience. With the specific needs – and budgets – of college and university boards in mind, CBE and MPK&D have developed an innovative and effective evaluation tool that is accessible and useful for institutions seeking to identify their own risks and weaknesses, while also reinforcing areas of strength. Following the initial assessment, MPK&D could then provide strategy and solutions to assist institutions with the development and implementation of plans to address the results.

“With greater demand for accountability, colleges and universities are under a harsh magnifying glass,” said Byron Loflin, CEO of CBE. “We are pleased to partner with MPK&D to provide a new and unique solution for promoting board performance at the university level that aligns with our array of cost-efficient and effective governance products.”
