Ganas, appointed a special Joint Committee, comprised of members of the Faculty and the Schools Administration, together with members of the Corporate Board and the Board of Trustees. The initial review was to be completed in six months time, but the School requested and received an extension, in order to have ample time for all the Board Members to have substantive input.
