Call for nominations
The Nominating, Governance and Trustee Development Committee of
the Board of Trustees welcomes recommendations for new members to
bring guidance and wisdom to the university's governing board.
The board seeks energetic and committed people with expertise in
areas including, but not limited to: higher education, finance, the arts,
technology, global learning, legal affairs, marketing, or media relations.
Nominees should display the ability to exercise informed, independent
judgment and to act in the best interests of Colgate to properly steward
the university's academic, program, and fiscal resources.
Candidates should be willing to fully immerse themselves in the
work of the board. They should place Colgate as a priority in terms of
time and philanthropy, and be committed to staying abreast of the
changing landscape of higher education.
The full board meets three
times a year, and trustees are expected to participate in committee
meetings and conference calls at other times. Trustees are also often
asked to attend and/or host other university events.
Each year, the board welcomes three to five new trustees for three-year
terms that may be followed by two additional three-year terms.
Recommendations may be made by mail to:
