SIU Board of Trustees

Southern Illinois University's Board of Trustees was created by the Illinois General Assembly for the purpose of operating, managing, controlling, and maintaining SIU.

The board consists of seven members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate, and student members selected by the student bodies of SIU at Carbondale and SIU at Edwardsville. In addition, per state statute, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, or his or her chief assistant for liaison with higher education when designated to serve in his or her place, serves as an ex-officio member of the board.
