The Westminster Board of Trustees exercises the “ultimate institutional authority” in the management of the affairs of the College. Trustees give of their time, talent and resources to safeguard the traditions, assets and values of the College; ensure the College’s strategic direction and mission are followed and its enhanced capacity to service society is met; and provide oversight and guidance for the activities of the College.
The Westminster Board of Trustees consists of not more than 45 and not less than 24 members and meets three times a year—in the fall, winter and spring.
