Pardee RAND Board of Governors

The role of the Pardee RAND Graduate School Board of Governors cannot be overstated. Board members serve as strategic advisors, offering not only their ideas and expertise but also, through their generous gifts, a solid financial foundation from which we can operate. They help us not just with fundraising but also with “friend-raising”—introducing others into the Pardee RAND community so that we can achieve our overarching objective to create the next generation of policy leaders. With delegated governance authority, the board reviews and oversees our budget, offers counsel to help ensure the quality of our curriculum, supports our approach to attracting and retaining the best and brightest from throughout the world, and helps us become an engine of innovation at RAND.

Members of the Board of Governors are also primary providers of scholarships, dissertations, and unrestricted funds: They understand our need for student support and flexibility—to use money where it is needed most and when opportunities arise.
