Hilbert College President Cynthia Zane will serve on a new national committee of college and university presidents formed to assess the future of independent colleges.

The Council of Independent Colleges organized the 22-member panel to develop a plan that encourages independent colleges and universities to revitalize their missions and business models. The project, The Future of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges, is funded by the Lumina Foundation.

The group will convene with its first meeting Sept. 16 and 17 in Washington, D.C.
