Don’t Count on Trustees

George Leef

In this week’s Pope Center Clarion Call, I write about college and university trustees, and conclude that it would be a mistake to count on them to do much to steer their schools on a better path. I find illuminating the case of T. J. Rodgers. As a Dartmouth board member, he was stymied in his desire to improve educational quality at his school, but as a CEO, he could demand a board composed of people with expertise who would tell him when he was making a mistake.
