The president is the formal head of the University Executive Committee and shall chair the committee in the university’s strategic decision-making and operations. The Committee is responsible for general administration as well as the appointment of new faculty and staff members. Members of the University Executive Committee shall meet every second Tuesday of the week to make strategic decisions and operations for the university.

The Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the university. The business and the affairs of the university shall be exercised under the governance of the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees shall have ultimate and final authority in the governance of the university. The Board shall be made up of Ex Officio Members of the University together with members of the public whose nomination shall come from within UUA Constituency.
