Trust Exchange Observed

Robert Thill November 3, 2011

At the first Presidential Search Forum that The Cooper Union Board of Trustees held on campus, the topic of the qualities that the Cooper Community sought in a new president was reframed by trustee Cynthia Weiler to focus on what the Cooper Community saw as its primary institutional priorities and qualities. The first answer from the attendees—-without hesitation—-was merit-based full-tuition scholarships, as articulated in Cooper’s mission statement. A commitment to diversity was also promptly made. Ms. Weiler highlighted the stature of the faculty and she reaffirmed her own financial commitment to The Cooper Union.
