Governance

Continue Board involvement and support to meet Graland’s Mission.

Board engagement is a high priority as we carry on a long tradition of strong leadership and wise stewardship. We will pursue opportunities for board education and assessment as we look towards developing the expertise of our current trustees, while actively cultivating new trustees who bring a balance of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and skillsets.
 
We will commit to more communication and transparency to inform the Graland community about board decisions, procedures and the management of the endowment through the Graland Foundation. We will continue to pursue strong governance practices, as the board upholds the school’s mission, assesses performance against this strategic plan and advises on financial decisions including the development of a five-year financial plan.
“We envision a path that will allow students to succeed now and in the future.”
 
- John Gowen, President of the Board of Trustees
