About - Commissions
Throughout SREB’s history, governors have taken the lead on critical education issues by convening policymakers from member states. SREB commissions bring greater attention to these topics, build consensus and make recommendations to address the challenges. The focus of a commission often arises from SREB’s Goals for Education; commission recommendations always inform revisions of the Goals.

The Southern Regional Education Board Commission on College Affordability in the South focused on aligning state policies toward the goal of affordability for students and families. The Commission met during 2014 and 2015 and published reports and recommendations in 2016.
