    A recent announcement from North Carolina’s Duke University noted that Apple CEO Tim Cook has joined the school’s Board of Trustees, in which Cook will help direct the university’s fiscal and educational policies. There are other additions to the Board alongside Cook, including ValueAct Capital CEO Jeff Ubben, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, Coca-Cola Foundation chairwoman Lisa Borders, and PRM Advisors founder Patricia Morton. There are now a total of 37 board members at Duke University.

    Cook graduated with a Bachelor of Science in industrial engineering in 1982 from Auburn University in Alabama and then graduated from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business for his MBA in 1988. This could very well explain why the university asked the alum to take part in their Board of Trustees. Back in April, the Apple CEO sat down with the Fuqua School of Business for an interview. Then in 2013, he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from Auburn University.

    Apple definitely believes education is an important part of life as the company is always doing something with the department of education, in more ways than one. Take a look at the announcement from Duke in the source link below.

      Is there girl in the upper right on the board or a student??

      Looks much too young to be a member of the board for a major university.
