MCB Board of Governors

When the Martha Cook Building was built I thought the occupants should be self-governing, like a sorosis. President Hutchins and my brother Chauncey persuaded me to add a board of governors. That was wise. - William Cook

The Board of Governors plays a vital role in the stewardship of the Building. It's members are appointed today by the U-M President and all serve without financial compensation. The role they carry out is described in their bylaws: 

The function of the Board of Governors, with the approval of the President of the University of Michigan, and within the University structure, is to set policy for the management of the Martha Cook Building (MCB), to maintain and foster an environment of congenial living and growth, to maintain the traditions of MCB, to approve the budget and expenses of the Building, to maintain the historic Building itself, and to oversee the Building’s staff. The Board will also foster good working relationships with other departments of the University.
