Emory Home Secretary's Site Home

Overview

Emory's charter and bylaws explain Board of Trustees committee work, the roles of University officers, the power and authority of trustees, and general rules and decorum for the board.

The board chair appoints Faculty Counselors to serve on several of the major board committees, in accordance with the bylaws. They typically serve a three-year term, other than the president and president-elect of the University Senate (who serve ex officio for one year).
