Plans are already underway to enact many changes similar to those included in the BLR group’s list of recommendations. This week, we announced the formation of a special Governance Review Task Force
to assess and recommend improvements in the Board’s processes. We also posted an Oct. 4, 2016 Board memo
on “The Facts
” web page outlining the steps the board took this summer to streamline deliberations, strengthen lines of reporting and disband our Athletics Committee. The memo also details our efforts to receive training from the Association of Governing Boards as well as retain two governance experts to begin the process of refining our procedures.
