Board of Trustees

Purdue University’s Board of Trustees consists of ten members, appointed by the governor of Indiana. Three of these members – one of whom must be a graduate of the College of Agriculture – are nominated by the Purdue Alumni Association. The 1975 General Assembly provided for the tenth member, a student. The Board selects the president of the University, decides major policy lines, approves the financial program and budget, approves the president’s nominations for major appointments, and approves all construction and major contracts.
