Students at the Library

The Board of Governors is the decision making body of the University. Eight Governors are elected in state wide elections to serve and eight year term on the Board. The University President also takes part in the Board of Governors meetings. Five Board of Governors committees meet on the Wednesday preceding the monthly Friday Board of Governors meetings. Not all the committees meet every month. Some usually meet only when an issue arises. Each committee is chaired by a member of the Board of Governors. The committees make recommendations to the Board on matters of concern. The Board, in turn, votes upon the committees' recommendations. These committees are of the utmost importance because they provide direct student input at the point where most decisions are made.
