Schwarz, Thomas J.
Trusteeship, v8 n3 p8-12 May-Jun 2000
A trustee identifies five lessons for governing boards based on six months' experience as acting president of Hamilton College (New York): (1) balance the membership of trustee committees; (2) seek, within limits, close encounters with faculty and campus leaders; (3) encourage critical thinking as well as cohesiveness; (4) encourage a systems approach; and (5) become familiar with campus needs.
