Serving on a board of trustees is both an honor and a responsibility. As a trustee, you are a link between your institution and students, faculty, staff, the public and other constituencies that support it and are served by it. You are a steward of mission, reputation and resources. In fulfilling your responsibilities, you will contribute your talent, expertise and dedication.
To expand your understanding of a board’s purposes and composition, and your duties as a trustee, consult our
Higher Education Board Guidebook. Within its pages you’ll find guidance on your roles, responsibilities and liabilities; keeping the board effective; accountability and integrity; financial stewardship; and operating procedures.
As you read, you may realize you have questions in some areas. Contact us; our Not-for-Profit and Higher Education professionals are committed to helping address your board and organization challenges.
Audit committee members can find information and download our Higher Education Audit Committee Guidebook.
