About the President’s Commission
The President’s Commission, established in 1989, is a distinguished group of alumni, parents and friends of Wheaton College appointed to serve as advisors to the president and trustees in matters of institutional development and issues of importance in higher education. Members of the President’s Commission are chosen from all walks of life for their expertise, interest in higher education, and special commitment to Wheaton.
Advisory in nature, the President’s Commission plays a particularly important role in bringing an external perspective to matters of policy and planning that concern the president and trustees of Wheaton College. As Wheaton continues to fulfill its strategic plan for academic excellence and financial equilibrium in an intensely competitive environment, the college requires new kinds of knowledge and unprecedented efforts to create uncompromising standards of educational quality, to enhance public and constituent awareness of Wheaton and to provide and garner financial support and expertise to strengthen the institution.
At full capacity, the President’s Commission numbers about 100 members, each of whom serves a three-year term. Commissioners are asked to attend two meetings each year on campus, one each in the spring and the fall. These meetings, usually concentrating on one issue, include discussions with the president and other senior administrators, with trustees, and with faculty staff and students. Members of the President’s Commission serve as a sounding board for the campus community, applying their expertise from their professional, volunteer and family experiences and their perspectives as committed alumni, parents and friends of Wheaton.
