Texas Tech Faculty Member Elected to Oldest Higher Education Association

Texas Tech University’s senior vice president for enrollment management & student affairs, Michael D. Shonrock, was elected to a three-year appointment on the Board of Directors for the Association of Public Land-grant Universities (APLU).

Shonrock also will continue to serve as a representative of the Council on Student Affairs from 2011 to 2013.

He said he is prepared to start his position and looks forward to certain aspects of his new undertaking.

“I am most interested in participating as a board member in a number of the APLU initiatives particularly related to ‘The Future of Public Universities’ and ‘The College Portrait: Voluntary System of Accountability,’” Shonrock said.

The Voluntary System of Accountability is an initiative by public 4-year universities to supply basic, comparable information on the undergraduate student experience to important constituencies through a common web report – the College Portrait.

APLU is a non-profit association of public research universities, land-grant institutions and state university systems with campuses in all 50 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. It is dedicated to advancing learning, discovery and engagement.

The organization founded in 1887, is the nation’s oldest higher education association.
