University Administration


Board of Trustees

The University of Tulsa’s Board of Trustees consists of active members and emeritus members. Members hold office for a term of two or three years and election of approximately one-third of the total membership is held each year. With certain exceptions, no trustee except the President may serve more than two consecutive terms, but a trustee who has served two consecutive terms (a total of 6 consecutive years) is eligible for reelection after one year off. The President of the Tulsa Alumni Board and President of the National Alumni Board serve during the term of that office. Both active and emeritus trustees are elected by a majority vote of the Board of Trustees, which determines the terms, conditions, and qualifications of membership.
