The Governance Institute for Student Success (GISS) is a unique model that blends two outstanding programs, the Governance Leadership Institute of the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) and the Board of Trustees Institute developed by Student Success Initiatives (SSI) at the University of Texas.

Using a multi-layered approach, the GISS helps trustees and presidents of the nation's community and technical colleges develop a governing culture grounded in verifiable evidence and committed to student success and completion. Participation provides college leaders with an opportunity to increase their understanding of policies that lead to student success at the institutional level and to collaborate closely with state association leaders and key stakeholders to assure state-wide impact.

The GISS emphasizes effective governance and data-informed decision through three core components: data collection and review, convenings and ongoing engagement.

We invite you to explore our website and encourage you to contact us to bring the GISS to your state!
