Claremont Graduate University alumna Eileen B. Wilson-Oyelaran (MA, Educational Studies '72; PhD, Educational Studies '77) has been named chair of the board of directors of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) for 2013-14. She assumed her position on Feb. 6 at the NAICU 2013 annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
The NAICU serves as the unified national voice of private nonprofit higher education. With more than 1,000 member institutions and associations nationwide, NAICU reflects the diversity of independent higher education in the United States. Since 1976, the association has represented private nonprofit colleges and universities on policy issues with the federal government, such as those affecting student aid, taxation, and government regulation.
Wilson has served as president of Kalamazoo College in Michigan since 2005. As NAICU chair, she will lead the organization in setting the association’s agenda on federal higher education policy, actively encourage support of NAICU priorities and initiatives, and oversee the association’s financial administration.
“President Wilson-Oyelaran assumes the NAICU chair at an unprecedented time of change and challenge for American higher education,” said NAICU President David L. Warren. “The deepening role of the federal government, tightening fiscal constraints, rapidly changing student demographics, a wave of technological innovation, and globalization are converging in ways the nation has never experienced.”
