About D-E

Board of Trustees


Trustees of Dwight-Englewood School are entrusted with the responsibility of stewardship over the institution as a whole, collectively tasked with overseeing the School's well-being and the advancement of its mission. Integral to this stewardship is ensuring compliance with all legal obligations and fostering prudent financial management for both present and future endeavors. 

Board members are nominated by the Committee on Trustees and elected by the full Board based on their dedication to the School and alignment with the mission and the immediate and long-term goals of the institution. The full Board convenes at least seven times annually to deliberate reports from the Head of School, administrators, and Board Committees.

The Board conducts much of its business through standing committees, which convene regularly. Additionally, the Board retains the authority to establish further committees as required. Currently, these committees include:
  • Executive Committee
  • Audit Committee
  • Buildings & Grounds
  • Committee on Trustees 
  • Development Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Investment Committee
