Council of Trustees



          The 12-member Council of Trustees governs the University. Its members are nominated and appointed by the Governor of Pennsylvania, with the advice and consent of the Senate, serving a term of six years, and until their successors are appointed and qualified. At least two members of the group are alumni of the institution and one member is a full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing. The Council meets on a quarterly basis at the University or from time to time as may be called upon by the president, chairperson, or upon request of three of its members.
