The University benefits from a committed and active Board of Trustees, whose responsibilities include approval of the plans and budget of the institution. The Board of Trustees, by majority vote, appoints the principal officers of the University, who are the President, the Executive Vice-President, the Treasurer, and the Secretary. Other University leaders are appointed by the President. We are also fortunate to have exceptionally dedicated administrators and staff.
The Executive Committee, comprised of the Executive Vice President, the Treasurer, the Chief Administrative Officer, and the Executive Director for Institutional Advancement, meets weekly to conduct the week-to-week administrative affairs of the University.
Academic governance is based on collegial decision making, implemented through committees of the Faculty Senate, with policies and decisions reviewed by the Academic Council (the executive body of the Faculty Senate) and by the Faculty Senate as a whole.
The administration of daily affairs is conducted by an Executive Vice-President, who reports to the President, in conjunction with the other administrative and academic leaders.
Administrative departments report to the Chief Administrative Officer. Academic departments, institutes, student services, and academic support departments report to the Dean of Faculty, who chairs the Faculty Senate. See the organizational chart.
