Board of Trustees of The Catholic University of America

The Board of Trustees of The Catholic University of America have the ultimate responsibility for governance and sole responsibility for fiscal affairs of the University. The bylaws and civil charter limit the board to no more than 50 members, of whom 24 must be clerics. The Archbishop of Washington, who serves as Chancellor of the University, and the president of the University serve as ex officio members. Members serve terms of four years, and typically do not serve more than three consecutive terms.[1] Normally, all the cardinals who serve as bishops of U.S. Dioceses are members of the board.[2]


The Executive Committee is composed of the Chairman of the Board, the Chancellor, the President, and the chairmen of standing committees on Academic Affairs, Audit, Development, Finance, Student Life, Trusteeship and University Seminary, and three other at-large members elected by the membership. Non-voting membership in certain standing committees is extended to duly appointed members of the administration, faculties, and staffs, to undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students, and to externs.[1]


As of September 1, 2013, the Board of Trustees at The Catholic University of America was composed of 45 members:[1]
