College Board - AP&I


About the Team

The AP Higher Ed team at College Board is a seven-person collaborative team that represents all AP courses to faculty and staff at colleges and universities across the country. Our focus is on securing new or improving existing credit or placement policies for qualifying AP scores - work that then allows students to benefit from the advanced work they engaged in during high school. External-facing team members are experts in public speaking and in navigating one-on-one conversations with faculty, academic affairs staff, and at times, state-level policy makers. Internal-facing team members are facile with data and reporting technology, budgeting, and event planning. We pride ourselves on serving as ambassadors for the AP program to colleges and universities and because of our deep knowledge of the higher ed landscape, we also act as strategic advisors to the AP Program
