Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees oversees all charitable, scientific and academic activities at the University of Pittsburgh. The board consists of 36 voting members, including 12 who are appointed by Commonwealth of Pennsylvania officials, as well as ex officio and emeritus trustees.

Board members meet throughout the year, participating in both working committees and public sessions, and the Office of the Secretary coordinates all communication between the University community and its board members.
