It is a best practice for universities to review their governance practices.  I was pleased to work with my project partner Dr. Julia Eastman to conduct a comprehensive review of Dalhousie’s governance.  This review arose from its most recent strategic planning exercise.  Dalhousie is to be commended for recognizing the importance of effective governance to the realization of strategic goals.
