Board of Trustees


Three Elected as Alumni Representatives to the Board of Trustees


In 1974, the U.S. Congress established the Board of Trustees of the University of the District of Columbia to govern the University of the District of Columbia. The Board is a body of the District of Columbia government that has the authority to independently issue regulations governing the University, own and manage the property of the University, and represent the University in court. The Board hires the President of the University System.

The Trustees are charged with establishing and ensuring accreditation of the components of the University System, which at a minimum must include a liberal arts component, a vocational and technical component, and a school of law. They approve all majors and degree programs offered at the University, and set academic policies such as degree requirements and tuition and fees. In addition, the Trustees are responsible for setting UDC's budget in conjunction with the Mayor and City Council.

The University's and Board's authorizing legislation is the Post-Secondary Education Reorganization Act of 1974 (D.C. Official Code §§ 38-1201.01 – 38-1204.07 (2001 ed.)).
