The Tuskegee University Board of Trustees is accepting nominations for an elected alumni trustee position. The alumni trustee will serve a three-year term on the Board.

The goal of the Board of Trustees is to provide university oversight through its president, as well as helping to advance its engagement with students, parents, alumni, and philanthropic donors. As such, the board's responsibilities include, but are not limited to, creating policies; setting mission and purpose; strategic planning; reviewing programs; and relating campus to community and community to campus.

The board is comprised of up to 25 voting members, which includes five trustees appointed by Alabama's governor. Board-appointed Trustees serve for three years; state-appointed trustees for four years. In addition to the 25 voting trustees, there are several non-voting ex officio members, including the university's president, a faculty trustee who is the faculty senate chair, a student trustee elected by the student body, and Alabama's state superintendent of education.

Nominations will be accepted through April 18th; the process includes an application-based nomination phase, a review of applications by an ad hoc Committee on Alumni Trustee Elections, selection of finalists by the trustee's Nominating, and Board Structure Committee, and an online vote by the university's alumni community.

The list of current Trustees can be found here. Complete details – including the online application, candidate qualifications, and a timeline and additional information – are available on the university's website at:
