Recommendations for Potential Trustee Candidates

Trustees elected by Princeton's alumni make up nearly one third of the members of the University's Board of Trustees. This governing body is a working board and our elected trustees play an important role in determining policy and setting the future course of the University.

Last year, Princeton alumni elected Derek Kilmer '96 on the At-Large ballot and José Alvarez '85 on the Region I Alumni ballot.

We want your input. If you would like to recommend a Princeton alumnus or alumna, undergraduate or graduate, as a potential trustee candidate, please send his or her name with a brief letter of support to:\

M. Kathryn Taylor '74
Director, Special Projects

We invite you to submit recommendations for potential trustee candidates. The committee meets throughout the academic year to review all suggestions, research future candidates, and choose the slates for the annual ballot.
