Governance Recommendations to Maintain The College's Preeminent Role in Higher Education

A Study by the Governance CommitteeĀ of the Dartmouth College Board of Trustees, August 2007

Since Dartmouth's founding in 1769, the College's Charter has placed responsibility for Dartmouth's governance with its Board of Trustees. Consistent with that responsibility, the Board has periodically examined and changed its size, composition, and organization as well as the process for selecting Trustees to ensure the College continues to have a strong and effective governing body. This review is the latest in a long series of Board governance studies. Read the Executive Summary.
