A Day in the Life....

For a personal glimpse of the men and women serving on the Dartmouth Board of Trustees, we'll from time to time provide some background on current Trustees and go beyond the impressive biographies offered on the Dartmouth website.

In January 2005, a reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle followed Dartmouth Trustee and Cypress Semiconductor CEO T.J Rodgers for a day. The article documents everything from his bold personality and leadership style to his passion for wine and the Green Bay Packers. And, you can even find out what T.J. thinks of "American Idol" and "The Apprentice."

UPDATE: Trustee Rodgers recently authored an op-ed on Dartmouth's speech codes and the right to express minority views on campus. For those who don't already know, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), ranks Dartmouth as "worst-case" on their freedom-of-speech index.
