Trustee-in-Residence: A Proposal for Improved Governance.
Frantzreb, Arthur C.; Marcus, Melvin M.
A trustee-in-residence plan is proposed as a possible solution to the problem expressed by governing board members who feel they rarely have the opportunity to develop any real knowledge about their institutions. The plan calls for establishment of a permanent, rotating residency program to permit really interested members to spend most or all of a week on campus. Preferably they should live in a student residential setting, attend classes and seminars and sessions of the Student Council and other student interest groups; eat in residential dining rooms, student union cafeterias, faculty dining rooms; attend Faculty Senate and other faculty meetings; and sit in on the President's Cabinet and/or other administrative sessions. Trustees-in-Residence should also attend some of the cultural events, religious services, intercollegiate and intramural activities, as well as have time and opportunity set aside for informal confrontations with students, faculty, and administrators.
