Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees - Landing Page Copy

Cazenovia College's Board of Trustees takes seriously the active and conscientious performance of its responsibilities as the institution's governing body. Consistent with generally approved practices for independent colleges, the Board and its members leave day-to-day operations and decision making in the hands of the President, the executive staff, the faculty, administration, staff and the institutional governance system. The Board avoids decision-making or direct interference in matters of personnel.

In general, the Board places a high value on communication and always seeks opportunities to share and receive information. Through its contacts with the President and the executive staff, and through the operations of its committees, the Board provides feedback, takes and asks questions, and works diligently to ensure that its decisions are based on informed and thorough understanding of the issues before it.
