Prez. Kim on Trustee Qualities

Before the largest crowd in the Dartmouth Club of DC’s history, President Kim responded on Wednesday (3/24) to an alumna’s question about the optimal Trustee qualifications as follows: “This is not a management job – it’s my responsibility to manage the College. We need someone with wide experience across a broad career, who will come in for the five annual meetings and focus on the critical strategic challenges we face. And I need someone who can provide real expertise when I want to reach out for counsel. How great is it that when questions come up on human resources challenges, or other important matters, I can tap into the expertise of someone like Jeff Immelt (CEO of GE), who can give me the benefit of what he’s doing running a big business right now.”
