Rider is fortunate to have a dedicated volunteer Board of Trustees. Trustees are senior-level executives and entrepreneurs in the public and private sectors – professionals in the fields of business, technology, health care, education, law and the arts, among others. They bring to the table their expertise, an abiding commitment to Rider’s mission and vision and an affection for the University which many call their alma mater.
