USI's Rochon to Lead National Group


Rochon was named chair-elect of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities

The president of USI will become chairman of the board for the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Dr. Ron Rochon was chosen to serve a one-year term as Chair-Elect of the Association’s Board of Directors, before beginning a term as Chair in 2024.

The move was announced during the group’s annual conference on Tuesday.

Rochon has been a board member since 2020, and currently serves on the Executive Committee and chairs the Millennium Leadership Initiative Executive Steering Committee.

In a release from USI, Rochon said he was “deeply humbled by the opportunity.”

The association is a Washington-based higher education group consisting of nearly 400 public colleges, universities, and systems.

The association says its members share a learning- and teaching-centered culture, a historic commitment to underserved student populations, and a dedication to research and creativity that advances their regions’ economic progress and cultural development.
