The Rise of Student Trusteeship in the United States: A Case Study at Indiana University
Lozano, Jon M.
American Educational History Journal, v43 n1 p93-109 2016
Colleges and universities across the United States have, over the centuries of their existence, gradually developed the systems of governance that we see today. Typically, this has taken the form of a governing board comprised of individuals with some connection to the institution. Although major restructuring of institutional governance may seem like a far off thing in the past, some significant changes to governing boards are quite recent. Among these important and recent changes is the further broadening of the constituencies included on college and university governing boards to include students. Indiana University, one of the largest public institutions in the American Midwest, is one such institution to see a student added to their board. After a brief exploration of the origins of student membership on governing boards, this article examines early student interactions with the Board at Indiana, how the student position on the Board was developed at Indiana University, the individuals who have served in the role, and how they have shaped it as time has progressed.
