As printed in the latest Duke Magazine (September/October 2007). "Former speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives and trustee Daniel T. Blue Jr. is leading a committee to assess Richard H. Brodhead's first three years as president of Duke University. A similar review was carried out for Brodhead's predecessor, Nannerl O. Keohane, after her first three years in office, and also in 2000, as part of a process established in 1982 to evaluate presidents, officers, and deans at regular intervals.
"Blue J.D. '72 is joined by trustees Paula P. Burger '67, A.M. '74, dean for undergraduate education and vice provost for Johns Hopkins University; Alan D. Schwartz '72, president of Bear Stearns Companies Inc.; and Anthony Vitarelli '05, a student at Yale Law School--and faculty members from the law school, medical center, and Trinity College.
The committee will report to the board of trustees by the end of the calendar year.
