University Governance

2016 Trustees

Princeton University is led by Christopher L. Eisgruber, who became president on July 1, 2013, after serving as provost for nine years. Eisgruber joined the Princeton faculty in 2001 as the director of the Program in Law and Public Affairs and the Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Public and International Affairs and the University Center for Human Values.

The Trustees of Princeton University, a 40-member board, is responsible for the overall direction of the University. It approves the operating and capital budgets, supervises the investment of the University's endowment and oversees campus real estate and long-range physical planning. The trustees also exercise prior review and approval concerning changes in major policies, such as those in instructional programs and admission, as well as tuition and fees and the hiring of faculty members.

Princeton's academic officers and officers of the corporation oversee various aspects of University governance.

The Council of the Princeton University Community was created in 1969 and serves as a forum for the discussion of issues. The CPUC examines and makes recommendations on questions of policy that govern and affect the welfare of the University community. Chaired by the president, the council is composed of faculty, staff, students and alumni.
