A group of 22 individuals that includes college presidents, business
leaders, academics, and others has signed on to a report calling on
trustees to take a more active role in college governance.
The report, “Governance for a New Era: A Blueprint for Higher Education Trustees,” was released
on Tuesday by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. It stemmed
from a project led by Benno Schmidt, chairman of the City University of
New York’s Board of Trustees and a former president of Yale University.
