Notes In 1948 Ivey was called to head the nascent Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), an alliance of 16 Southern states which sought to improve education through regional cooperation. Under Ivey, the SREB created a mechanism for colleges and universities in different states to share facilities and educational programs so that each state would not have to create duplicate programs. At the same time, Ivey resisted attempts by segregationist politicians to turn the SREB into an instrument to circumvent racial desegregation.[2]
