Management of the university is legally vested in the Board of Trustees, which delegates authority to the president for the operation of the total university program in keeping with established procedures and policies. The board approves all major policy decisions, adopts the official budgets of the university and passes on other major matters of university business.
This board was established to assist the university in the achievement of long-range goals. By consulting with the president and the trustees, advisors add variety, strength and experience to the administrative structure of the university. The board is comprised of interested persons — both alumni and friends of the universities — of various Christian faiths and from several states.
The president’s leadership team consists of the vice presidents and other administrative team members.
The Dean’s Council functions in an advisory and decision making capacity to the Executive Vice President.
