C3N's executive board is composed of high-ranking representatives of our network’s key members, spanning the spectrum from college access providers and community-based organizations to institutions of higher education and corporations. The board is represented and led by a Chairperson, who, in tandem with the C3N Manager, serves as the public face of the network and provides it with strategic leadership. Meeting quarterly, the board supports the C3N Manager, assists in the implementation and management of the network’s many initiatives, and contributes to network strategic planning.
