Lakehead revises board size to improve efficacy

March 5, 2012

Lakehead University's board of governors agreed Friday to reduce their numbers from 30 to 17, and to trim the number of committees from 11 to 6 through strategic consolidation. The move follows a year-long internal review of the board's structure. Lakehead says the changes will result in more engaged board members, more effective management of university affairs, improvement in board operating efficiencies, more meaningful and rewarding committee membership, and clearer role descriptions and expectations. Implementation of the changes will start this September. Lakehead News Release | Backgrounder
