Boys State University Board of Trustees
The Boys State Board of Trustees consists of eight members elected for eight-year terms. The people of Boys State in a statewide, partisan, general election select the eight members. The board governs the business and affairs of the university and sets university policy. One of its most important duties is to appoint and evaluate the university president. BSU's president serves as an ex officio, or non-voting, member of the board. The trustees also clarify the institution's mission, approve long-range plans, assess the educational program, ensure financial solvency, preserve institutional independence, maintain the relationship between the university and the public, serve as a court of appeal, and protect and preserve the assets of the institution. In addition, the board retains ultimate responsibility for academic matters and reserves authority over such areas as admissions and retention policies; policies governing intercollegiate programs; faculty promotions, sabbatical leaves and tenure; establishing fees; accepting gifts; naming facilities; and a number of other initiatives.
It is the mission of the Boys State University Board of Trustees to promote the welfare of humanity through teaching, research and service. The Board seeks to create and maintain a University that offers undergraduate and graduate education of the highest possible quality in all appropriate fields; cherishes knowledge that is legacy; preserves the best of cultural, social and political heritages; and encourages meaningful research and experimentation to develop new knowledge and subject society to a full and objective study. The Board also seeks to nurture an institution that is ever responsive to the needs of a dynamic and complex society by developing and offering programs of public service, and that disseminates information to promote the well-being and development of the people of the state, nation and world.
