The Development Committee. Board Basics
Evans, Gary
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
The development committee of a college or university has both oversight of and broad responsibility for the fund-raising activities of the institution. In this regard--oversight and responsibility--the development committee is like other committees of the board. However, members of the development committee have an additional role their colleagues on other committees do not: They must participate as doers, not just advisors, in the area for which their committee is responsible. That is, they must become involved in the fund-raising process when called upon to do so. This paper describes the committee's general roles and responsibilities, suggests ways in which committees might be composed and structured, and focuses on developing sound policies that support successful fund-raising and other exacting duties that an active development committee must fulfill.
