Orienting board members to ensure quality governance

March 23, 2018

“When board governance goes wrong, it can go very wrong,” writes Kathryn Masterson, which is why providing new board members with the tools, support, and information needed for the job is a critical step. The author argues that both a disengaged and an overengaged board can create major problems for an institution. To solve this, Masterson discusses how different US institutions are improving orientations and the training process for new board members to ensure that board members are well-equipped and prepared for their role. Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required)
