Attending Meetings of the Board of Trustees

Stated meetings of the Board of Trustees, including committee meetings, are open to the public.  

The purpose of these meetings is to allow the Board and its committees to deliberate and take action on university business and to receive reports from university leaders who have been scheduled on the agenda.  There is no public comment period.

Tickets are not required, and reservations are generally not necessary.*  Board meetings are well attended, and on occasion attendees may be asked to line up to enter the meeting room. They may also be asked to open bags for spot checks.
