Abstract

After ten years in office as President of St Donald''s College, Dr Nott faces conflict with the College''s Board of Trustees. Although enrollment has increased, academic quality has been improved, and the college is fiscally sound, the Board appears to be unhappy with Dr Nott. He was not consulted on the choice of the Board Chair and he has been denied effective input on the selection of new trustees. One or more trustees are pressuring him to hire more alumni, to hire trustee''s friends to teach at the college, to send students to lectures organised by a charity favoured by the Board Chairman, to give a trustee the college''s insurance business and to make the college more traditional in its appeal. Nott must decide what to do about each of these issues, some of which appear to present conflict of interest for trustees, and Nott must decide about his own future.
