We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated volunteer Board of Trustees. These talented and thoughtful people help make the decisions that set the course for the entire University. Meeting several times a year and in concert with the University's senior administration, the Trustees approve all policy, financial and structural matters. As successful alumni, community leaders, teachers, executives and entrepreneurs, they bring to the table expertise, a commitment to Rider's educational mission and, for many of them, an affection for their alma mater.
