Board of Trustees Nominations

July 29, 2019

Members of the Auburn Family:

The Auburn Trustee Selection Committee is opening the nomination period for vacancies for the following three seats: District 1, District 2, and District 9. We encourage all interested individuals to apply.

As described in the Alabama Constitution, following are the requirements to serve in these seats on the Auburn Board:

  • Must be a resident of the continental United States from each of the particular open districts listed above;
  • Cannot be an employee of Auburn University; and
  • Cannot be a member of the Selection Committee

As in the past, members of the Committee are looking for leaders who are forward-looking, service-oriented and dedicated to furthering Auburn’s instruction, research and extension missions. After nominations are received, the Committee will meet to select nominees for interviews. Interviews will be conducted by a majority of the Committee and will conclude prior to the start of the 2020 legislative session. The Committee consists of two members from the Board of Trustees, two members from the Auburn Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, and me as President of the Auburn Board or my designee. After these interviews, the Committee will appoint individuals to the open seats and forward their name to the Alabama State Senate for confirmation.
