The ACCT Governance Leadership Institute (GLI) is an annual governance-development and educational program for trustees and CEOs of community colleges. The GLI provides an in-depth overview of fundamental and advanced topics and trends unique to community college leaders.


Who Should Attend?

The GLI is an opportunity for new and experienced governing board members, as well as the college CEO, to collaborate and strengthen relationships as a team, and to come away with a common understanding of the roles and responsibilities of governing boards, as well as best practices for effective trustee-CEO relationships.

ACCT recommends, for the best possible learning outcomes, that a group of trustees attend with their college CEO.
