Board of Trustees

Fall 2018 Agenda

 

Established in 1874, the Board of Trustees helps TCU carry out its mission by setting policy and developing a long-term institutional strategy. The Board meets twice per year and consists of up to 50 members, and its bylaws also provide for emeritus and honorary members. The primary functions of the Board are to:

  • Establish and promote the overall strategic direction for the university
  • Hire and evaluate on a regular basis the Chancellor vis-a-vis his goal
  • Undertake other duties based on current needs or issues under the leadership of an annually elected chair

The majority of the Board’s work is accomplished through standing committees:

  • Academic Affairs
  • Audit/Risk & Compliance
  • Buildings & Grounds
  • Committee on Trusteeship
  • Development
  • Executive
  • Fiscal Affairs
  • Intercollegiate Athletics
  • Investment
  • Student Relations
