The Governance Institute for Student Success (GISS) is a national initiative that provides action-oriented training for community and technical college trustees and presidents to assist them in data-informed governance to promote student success, equity and completion. A robust and unique governance leadership model, GISS provides college leaders with insights, guidance and engagement to promote policies and accountability measures to increase student success.
GISS helps trustees and presidents of the nation's colleges to develop a governing culture grounded in verifiable evidence and committed to student success, equity and completion. Participation provides college leaders with an opportunity to increase their understanding of institutional policies that lead to student success and to collaborate closely with state association leaders and key stakeholders to assure statewide impact.
