Committee on Alumni Trustee Nominations

Representing Cornell's alumni on the Board of Trustees

Alumni-elected trustees have been part of Cornell’s fabric since 1874. Each year, two alumni are elected to join the full 64-member Cornell University Board of Trustees, which is vested with “supreme control” over the university, including all of its colleges and other units. Trustees have a fiduciary responsibility to the university as a whole. Among other responsibilities, the board elects the president, adopts an annual plan of financial operation, and establishes degrees to be awarded.
