We are very fortunate to have a dedicated volunteer Board of Trustees who commit their time, talent and treasure to the University. They are comprised of senior-level executives and entrepreneurs in the public and private sectors; professionals in the fields of education, business, technology, health care, engineering, the arts and law. They bring to the table their expertise, a commitment to Rider’s mission and, for many of them, an affection for their alma mater.
