Board of Governors

The Board of Governors makes policy decisions for the UNC system and all of its constituent institutions. The board also elects the president of the UNC system — currently Thomas Ross — who oversees the system’s administrative affairs. The N.C. General Assembly elects all 32 voting members of the board to four-year terms. There are non-voting members as well, such as former board chairmen, former governors and the president of the Association of Student Governments.

Committees are often appointed to discuss certain issues. Some of those standing committees include one for audits, budget and finance, educational planning, policies and programs, personnel and tenure, public affairs, strategic directions and university governance.
