Membership

Thompson Rivers University's 15-member Board of Governors comprises the Chancellor, the President, eight persons appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor (two of whom are appointed from among persons nominated by the alumni association), two faculty members elected by faculty, two students elected by students, and one person elected by and from the employees of the University who are not faculty members. (see Part 6, section 19 of The University Act)

The Governors' varied backgrounds provide valuable contributions during Board deliberations. Board members bring the views of various constituencies to the Board table, however there are no advocates for any one group. Decisions are made in the best interest of the University.
