Board of Trustees

Henderson State University's Board of Trustees is responsible for the educational mission, and administrative and fiscal policies of the university. Together, trustees set the direction of the university and ensure its continued well-being.

The board meets on a regular basis, receives reports presented by the president and vice presidents, listens to input from key stakeholders and deliberates to determine the broad courses of action for the university. The board has state authority and fiduciary responsibility to ensure that its actions promote Henderson State University's best interest. Board members have responsibilities to avoid conflicts of interest and to complete state-required financial disclosures.
