WGU Indiana operates under the same governance as that of its parent institution, WGU: a Board of Trustees consisting of educators, industry leaders, and state governors.
Board of Trustees
WGU Indiana receives support from our parent institution’s National Advisory Board (NAB). The NAB is composed of representatives from prominent corporations and foundations that provide ongoing input and support. Current members include:
In partnership with the state of Indiana, Western Governors University provides curriculum, learning resources, mentoring, and student services to WGU Indiana. The academic programs are developed and guided by WGU administrators within several councils of scholars and industry experts.
Health Professions Program Council
Nursing Program Council
General Education Council
Business Program Council
Information Technology Program Council
Education Program Council
WGU is a nonprofit online university that was founded by 19 U.S. governors. However,
it is a private university, not a state university. WGU developed out of a vision
for the future of higher education that emerged among the governors of the Western
Governors Association (hence our name), but WGU operates independently with its
own governance structure.
Each Program Council at WGU is composed of WGU faculty and outside experts in the
field of study. The council is responsible for guiding the development of degree
programs. The council will help define the skills and knowledge that a competent
graduate should possess, determine the best ways to assess the competence, as well
as monitor and review the relevance of each program over time.
WGU mentors serve as advisors to students. To learn more about the mentor’s role,
