Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross was elected to the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Board of Directors during the Jan. 4 Board of Directors meeting at CIC's 2016 Presidents Institute in Miami Beach, Florida. He will serve a three-year term.

CIC is a national higher education association that focuses solely on providing services and a broad range of initiatives directly to independent colleges and universities to help improve the quality of education and strengthen institutional resources.

"The Council is pleased to have Mr. Ross as a Board member," said CIC President Richard Ekman. "CIC continues to implement many new programs, projects, and services, and it needs a strong Board of Directors to oversee planning and execution. I am certain that Mr. Ross will serve the Council admirably, and I look forward to working with him."

Ross became Lynn's fifth president in 2006. Under his leadership, the university has redesigned its core curriculum, the Dialogues; was selected to host the third and final 2012 presidential debate; and was recognized twice as an Apple Distinguished School for its iPad initiative, one of the most extensive tablet-based learning programs in the country. The university is poised to realize its 15-year plan, Lynn 2020, two years ahead of schedule, and capital raised on university endowed projects under the plan will soon exceed $100 million.
