Penn State University Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees of the University is the corporate body established by the University’s charter with overall responsibility for the government and welfare of the University and all the interests pertaining thereto. In the exercise of its responsibilities, the Board of Trustees delegates day-to-day management and control of the University to the President, with certain reserved powers as set forth in the University’s Bylaws.

The voting members of the Board of Trustees are elected or appointed as follows: nine trustees are elected by the alumni of the University; six trustees are elected by delegates of organized agricultural societies and associations in the Commonwealth, six trustees are appointed by the Governor; six trustees are elected by the Board to represent “business and industry”; one trustee is elected by the Board from among the student body; one trustee is elected by the Board from among the faculty; and three at-large trustees are elected by the Board.
