The SIUE Foundation is governed by an independent, volunteer Board of Directors which is dedicated to supporting SIUE and its mission, vision, and values. The Board meets three times a year to transact Foundation business.
The Board is comprised of company presidents, CEOs, educators, accountants, community volunteers, real estate and finance leaders, as well as professionals in media, banking and other fields who provide input and guidance. These leaders serve on several committees that oversee specific areas of the Foundation, such as the Budget and Finance Committee, the Investment Committee, the Gift Planning Committee and others.
Serving as the liaison between the Foundation's Board of Directors and its staff is the Chief Executive Officer who also serves as the Vice Chancellor for University Relations for SIUE. The Chief Executive Officer, the SIUE Chancellor, the SIU President, a representative from the SIU Board of Trustees and the President of the SIUE Alumni Association all serve as ex-officio voting members of the Board of Directors.
