About the Board

The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Middle Tennessee State University and is responsible for selecting and appointing the president; setting the operating budget; approving personnel appointments; granting all degrees awarded by the University, including honorary degrees; establishing tuition and fee rates; approving contracts; and approving all rules, regulations, curriculum changes, new programs and degrees of the University. 

The Board consists of 10 members, 8 of whom are appointed by the governor, by and with consent of the Tennessee General Assembly.  In addition, the Faculty Senate elects a faculty member to serve a two-year term, and the Student Government Association presents three students to the University President for review, and he will recommend one of the three to the Board for approval.  The student trustee is non-voting and serves a one-year term.  They hold regularly scheduled meetings four times a year, and additional meetings as needed. 

The Board of Trustees of Middle Tennessee State University was established pursuant to 2016’s FOCUS Act (2016 Tenn. Pub. Acts, ch. 869)
