The Board of Trustees is the governing body of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Board members provide oversight and input regarding College policy, programmatic goals and financial resources.
Members serve staggered three-year terms. The Board includes an alumni representative elected by a majority of the members of the Alumni Association Board and a faculty representative elected by a majority of the general College faculty. The president and provost/senior vice president for academic affairs are ex-officio members of the Board of Trustees with full voting powers and each serves as a trustee as long as he or she holds office.
The Board of Trustees meets quarterly. Special meetings may be called by the chairman of the board or the president, or at the written request of three trustees.
Questions concerning the Board of Trustees should be directed to the Office of the President.
