Board of Trustees Orientation
Dear New Member of the Board:
On behalf of the Governance Committee of the Board of Trustees, administration, students, faculty, staff and alumni, welcome to the St. John Fisher College Board of Trustees. You are about to embark on an exciting adventure in corporate governance and leadership and I wish to congratulate you on your appointment to the Board of one of the premier institutions of higher education in New York State.
The Board Orientation will introduce you to the College. Whether you are an alumnus or new to the Rochester region, I believe you will find the Board Orientation materials very beneficial in the performance of your duties and responsibilities as a fiduciary of the College. They provide a useful overview of our history, operations, personnel, and budget that will help familiarize you with the character and mission of the College.
You will play a vital role in the governance of the College in the years ahead. You are joining a distinguished group of civic-minded men and women who throughout our history have sustained our mission. I strongly urge you to discover where your greatest contributions to our success may be found. For the sake of the College and for our community, I encourage you to seize this opportunity and participate fully in it.
