Recent Graduate Trustees

In February 2018, the Board of Trustees voted to create two Recent Graduate Trustee positions open to all graduating seniors. The Recent Graduate Trustees serve as full voting members of the board for a single two-year term. The board values the perspective that Recent Graduate Trustees bring to board deliberations.

The board seeks graduating seniors who have demonstrated leadership during their time at Smith. This might be through positional leadership roles like student government and organizational leadership, or other leadership positions such as those on athletic teams, in the houses, or via campus employment. In addition, strong candidates will be in good academic and disciplinary standing.

A college transcript, résumé and two letters of recommendation are required of applicants. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, February 1, 2021, and will be reviewed by a campus committee, who will identify candidates to be interviewed during the month of March. Ultimately, three candidates will be selected to interview with the Governance Committee of the Board of Trustees in April, and one finalist will be elected to the board at the May meeting of the Board of Trustees.
