Four committees currently exist to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the Board of Directors and larger Council of Fellows.
This group ensures completion of the annual agenda of board work in line with the strategic objectives of the College and Council; acts as a liaison to the Executive Director of the Board and Behrend’s Chancellor; and creates ad-hoc committees as needed.
Chair: Ann Scott
This committee works to identify board roles and responsibilities; encourages board development; assesses effectiveness; and reviews and revises bylaws as necessary.
Chair: Tesha Nesbit
Council Communications and Engagement
The committee develops and implements strategies for recruiting, retaining, and engaging members; creates membership information and procedures; provides tools and information that equip the Board and Council to share progress of the college and to advocate on issues of importance; and provides insights and perspectives to advance the visibility and image of the college and Council.
Chair: Kim Kaercher
The Development Committee is charged with involving the Council in identifying, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding efforts that support fundraising; ensuring a strong “case for support;” and communicating fundraising priorities to external audiences.
Co-Chairs: Priscilla Hamilton and Matt Totzke
