The Board of Trustees of Arcadia University is composed of talented, accomplished individuals who volunteer their time, leadership, and expertise to Arcadia University. The Trustees are a diverse group united by a deep affection and commitment to the University.
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the University and responsible for ensuring that Arcadia fulfills its mission and balances its obligations to current and future generations. The Board establishes long-term strategic policy and direction, approves the University’s budget and major financial expenditures, approves program initiatives, stewards Arcadia’s endowment and other capital resources, and appoints and supervises the President of the University.
The Board does not direct or participate in day-to-day management or operations of the University. Primary responsibility for academic programs and management and operation of the University is delegated to the President, administration, and faculty. Given the President’s responsibility to lead the University, one of the Board’s most important responsibilities is to work closely with the President for the good of Arcadia.
The Board meets on campus three times per year in Fall, Winter, and Spring, and also throughout the year as needed.
