Board of Trustees

Membership on the Drew University Board of Trustees is one of the highest honors that Drew can bestow upon an individual. Election to the board indicates that an individual has made a significant contribution to his or her community, has made noteworthy achievements in the service of society, and is capable of making equally important contributions to the university and to higher education.
