Timely Ideas Founder Named Trustee at Caldwell University

Timely Ideas Founder and Principal John Crawford has been appointed a member of Caldwell University’s Board of Trustees effective July 2014. In this capacity he will help advance the educational vision, mission and values of the school. Membership on the board is for a three-year term, renewable for additional terms. He was elected to the positon along with two other new members.

“Our new members bring wonderful business acumen to the table and at the same time embrace our mission,” said Chair of the Caldwell University board Nancy Costello Miller, J.D. in the announcement issued by the school. “It is an exciting time for them to join us as we begin our journey as a university and celebrate our 75th anniversary. We will surely benefit from the depth of their experiences and their insights.”

After 75 years operating as Caldwell College, the institution is now Caldwell University. The change in designation involved a nearly two-year process that fulfills a vision for the school and better reflects its strong academic offerings as well as its growth and diversity. It also provides increased opportunities for fundraising, greater ability to recruit and retain faculty and more leverage in recruiting students. The Board of Trustees oversees activities in areas such as creating policy, setting mission and purpose for the University.

“I am honored to be appointed and look forward to meeting and working with the other trustees to further the mission of Caldwell University,” said Crawford.

Crawford has been active in higher education for more than a decade, serving as an adjunct instructor and Wroxton College Advisory Committee at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
