Call for Nominations: OLC Board Member Positions

Dear Colleague:

The OLC Board of Directors Governance Committee seeks nominations for three (3) vacancies on the 17-member OLC Board of Directors. Terms for new Board members would begin on January 1, 2022, with the initial term length being three (3) years (eligible for renewal one time for another three-year term).

Per the Bylaws of the organization, nominees must be OLC members, individual (professional) or institutional membership, in good standing with the organization. A new Board member should be an engaged member of the online higher education community, possessing a broad perspective on the field with some exposure beyond their institution such as statewide, national or international experience and knowledge in our field. This should include energy and a commitment to service in our community. Additionally, a new Board member should have professional experience and expertise in areas of importance such as higher education finance; governance; executive leadership; policy; administrative leadership at the program, school/college or institutional level; research/scholarship; teaching; instructional design; strategic planning, etc. It is desirable that a new Board member should have a demonstrated record of service to OLC and knowledge of the history and mission of the OLC, as well as a genuine interest in OLC’s success.

We seek nominations for Board members, with expertise in online, blended or digital learning, from a wide range of backgrounds and experience to represent the diversity of our membership.

To submit a nomination (self-nominations are not permitted) for Board member positions, please visit and complete all requested fields (including providing Candidate CV) by June 25, 2021.
