Whom Does the College Trustee Serve?

September 29, 2015 by Steve Ludwig

Higher Ed Now, ACTA’s multimedia series for trustees, is pleased to present the three-part program, “Whom Does the College Trustee Serve?” In these segments, ACTA’s Vice President of Policy Michael Poliakoff sits down with University of Colorado Regent Stephen Ludwig to discuss the important question of whom college and university trustees serve in their roles as fiduciaries.

Regent Ludwig shares his insights on issues including shared governance, program prioritization, and the need for trustees to “do their homework” when it comes to obtaining independent, accurate data about their institutions.  In the upcoming months, be sure to stay tuned for future episodes in the Higher Ed Now series: “Four Financial Questions Trustees Must Ask.”
