Recommendations for the Governance of Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan Univ., Middletown, CT.
This report follows a reappraisal of the size, functions and purposes of Wesleyan's Board of Trustees. The Committee recommended that Wesleyan maintain: (1) a "working Board" organized so as to foster direct engagement of trustees with students and faculty members; (2) a relatively small and stable Board consisting of recent graduate, older and non-alumni; (3) a Board that was open in its deliberations and responsive to the community; (4) a Board that placed a high priority on supporting a flexible, innovative administrative structure; and (5) a Board with a committee system that permitted careful discharge of fiduciary responsibilities so that the Board as a whole could debate policy questions and help define educational objectives.
