The National Student Clearinghouse and the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center announced today new members to each of their respective Board of Directors. In addition, Dr. Anne Bryant, Executive Director Emerita, National School Boards Association, was named board chair, and Michael Collins, Vice President, Jobs for the Future and Chair of the Research Center Board, was chosen as board vice chair.

The Clearinghouse is governed by a board of directors comprised of a cross-section of the constituencies that it serves, including representatives from educational institutions, educational associations, and the education finance industry. The makeup of the Clearinghouse’s board reflects its status as a trusted, neutral, and reliable source for educational information and services.

New Clearinghouse board members:

  • Dr. Jack E. Daniels, III, President, Madison Area Technical College
  • Dr. Sharon Morrissey, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic & Workforce Programs, Virginia Community College System

New Research Center board members:

  • Dr. Sharon Morrissey, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic & Workforce Programs, Virginia Community College System
  • Dr. Carissa Moffat Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Council of Chief State School Officers, and current Clearinghouse Board member

For more than 28 years, the Clearinghouse has provided data and analysis for more than 3,600 colleges and universities, the U.S. Government, and the public at large. Now, as the nation faces extraordinary challenges, we welcome the opportunity to meet the new demands across the K-20 and the workforce continuum. I am honored to serve as the Chair of the Clearinghouse Board of Directors, and we welcome Dr. Daniels and Dr. Morrissey to the National Student Clearinghouse boards.

Dr. Daniels, president of Madison Area Technical College, brings a wealth of experience, leadership, and commitment to the educational attainment of students. His expertise includes strategic and master planning, Economic Development, and Community engagement.

Dr. Morrissey, Senior Vice Chancellor for the Virginia Community College system, has a vast and deep understanding of community colleges and the role they play in Workforce Development. Given the Clearinghouse’s increasing role in the workforce credentialing arena, she will contribute greatly to our strategic thinking and planning.

The Clearinghouse’s goal of data and information democratization has never been more relevant than it is today. To accomplish this end, we are accelerating the evolution of our data custodial role and information provision capacities to extend well beyond traditional education to provide a more holistic data-driven view of education, skills, and workforce pathways to better directly serve lifelong learners, and institutions of learning and enterprise.

With that in mind, we enthusiastically welcome these national leaders serving the community college and technical college eco-systems in the United States. Their insights will greatly help inform how our mission of access to the most relevant data by participants in the Clearinghouse can be enhanced via further data extensions and analytical services. I look forward to their insights in support of moving the Clearinghouse’s mission forward.

The Research Center is very grateful to Dr. Morrissey and Dr. Moffat Miller for volunteering to serve on our board. Because of their extensive experience in research and education, the Research Center will greatly benefit from their input in our efforts to help secondary and postsecondary education leaders navigate the current environment post-pandemic and beyond.

~ Doug Shapiro, Executive Director of the Research Center

I am honored to be selected as a Board member to the National Student Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse provides a great service to education institutions in providing accurate data that is essential in enrollment and program planning as institutions push the completion agenda at their respective colleges and universities. Providing input and guidance to this process and data analysis is extremely important and I welcome that opportunity.

~ Dr. Jack E. Daniels, III, President, Madison Area Technical College

I look forward to representing community colleges on the Clearinghouse and Research Center Board to support the Clearinghouse’s ongoing goal of providing disaggregated data to inform institutions about students’ increasingly complex education journeys, including credit for prior learning, stackable credentials, industry-recognized certifications, and lifelong learning.

~ Dr. Sharon Morrissey, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic & Workforce Programs, Virginia Community College System
