The Board of Trustees holds six two-day meetings throughout the academic year, usually convening on Thursdays and Fridays. The annual organizational meeting takes place every August. Special meetings may be held at the call of the president of the board.

Meetings cover diverse topics, but regularly address policies, capital improvements, budgets, the conferral of degrees, and faculty tenure and promotion. All meetings are open to the public, with the exception of executive sessions. Advance notice is not required to attend.
