Students walk past a tree-shaded building on campus

The Board of Trustees of the University of Oregon is the university’s governing body. The broad responsibilities of this 15-member group are to supervise, coordinate, manage, and regulate the UO, as provided by state statute. The trustees may exercise all powers, rights, duties, and privileges expressly granted by law or that are incidental to their responsibilities.


President Schill's access and affordability initiative and the new college and careers building also are on the agenda.

Once confirmed by the Oregon Legislature, freshman accounting major Will Paustian will serve through June 30, 2017.

Any University of Oregon student can apply to be on the Board of Trustees. Applications should be submitted by October 9.
