Board of Trustees

Trustees of Horace Mann School are fiduciaries to the institution as a whole, collectively responsible for overseeing the welfare of the School and the pursuit of its mission. A vital part of that oversight is seeking to ensure that all legal obligations are met and that sound financial management is provided for both current and future operations. Although trustees often have other relationships with the School—as alumni/ae, parents, or relatives of current or former students, officers of alumni or parent associations or otherwise—each trustee must put aside these personal relationships and concern him or herself solely with what is in the best current and long term interest of the institution as a whole.

Board members are nominated by the Committee on Trustees & Governance and elected by the full Board. New Board members are selected based upon the immediate and long term needs of the School, and for their commitment to the School. The full Board meets at least six times a year, on and off campus, to receive and discuss reports from the Head of School and other administrators, Board Committees, outside consultants and students, where appropriate.

The Board handles the majority of its business through standing committees, which meet regularly. The Board has the authority to create additional committees as needed. The present committees are:

  • Executive Committee
  • Committee on Trustees & Governance
  • Academic Affairs Committee
  • Audit Committee
  • Communications Committee
  • Development Committee
  • John Dorr Nature Laboratory Committee
  • Enrollment and Student Life Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Investment Committee
  • Physical Facilities & Real Estate Committee
  • Technology Committee
