Tilghman named to Carnegie board

Princeton NJ -- President Tilghman has been elected to the board of trustees of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

“We are delighted that Shirley will be joining the board. Her academic leadership and brilliant scholarship serve as models for the Carnegie Endowment and its research staff,” said board chair James C. Gaither. “We’ll value her contribution as we approach the 100th anniversary of the institution.”

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States.
