Board of Trustees

Bushnell University is governed by a board of trustees whose purpose is to maintain and support the University as a Christian institution of higher learning.

The board of trustees is the policy-making and governing body of the University. On the basis of recommendations made by the president of the University, it establishes a course for the development of the total program of the University and fulfillment of its mission, and it strives to provide essential funds.

Significant representation on the Board must come from members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Christian Churches/Churches of Christ associated with the Stone-Campbell heritage. Significant representation on the Board must also come from alumni (graduates or former students) of Bushnell University.

In November 2023 the Board of Trustees and Office of the President hosted a two-day symposium exploring biblical perspectives on racial reconciliation.
