Carrying on a two-century tradition of excellence

The Indiana University Board of Trustees is the university’s governing body. Established by the state legislature in 1820, the board has shaped the growth of the university since its beginning.

The board is made up of nine trustees, and its business is overseen by six officers. Three trustees are elected by alumni, and the remainder are appointed by Indiana’s governor.

The board meets four times a year on IU campuses around the state. Meetings are open to the public and anyone with an interest in the governance of the university is welcome to attend.
