CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi President/CEO, Dr. Flavius Killebrew, has been appointed as the Texas state representative to the Executive Council of the Board of Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

“I’m honored to have been selected for this leadership position,” said Killebrew.  “I will work diligently with the Association to assure the educational quality and effectiveness of our member institutions.”

Killebrew will fill an unexpired term and then be eligible for election to three one-year terms on the Executive Council. Killebrew is already serving a 3-year term as a member of the Board of Trustees, a 77-member body elected to represent approximately 800 institutions that are members of the Commission on Colleges. It is the board’s responsibility to determine commission policy, review and make decisions regarding the accreditation of higher education institutions in the Southeast, and forward proposed modifications of accreditation standards to the membership for a final vote.

“It’s all about ensuring that our college students receive the best education possible,” said Killebrew. “I will serve this council by addressing the issues we face as public universities and work to find solutions that fit our needs.”

SACSCOC is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the southern states. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices among the diverse institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Latin America and other international sites approved by the Commission on Colleges that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s, or doctoral degrees.
