CLASSES

The Statutes currently classify the Trustees as follows:

Trustees Ex Officio

The governor of the Commonwealth and the president of the University during their respective terms.

 

Charter Trustees

Up to ten in number, elected to serve until retirement from among persons who have served as trustees for a period of not less than five years.
(Until 1989, the term "life" trustee was used to describe trustees in this category.)

 

Term Trustees

Up to 30 in number, elected to serve for terms of five years. A term trustee may serve only two terms, which would ordinarily be successive, for a total of 10 years' service. Prior service in any other voting class will also be applied toward this 10-year maximum.

 

Alumni Trustees

Up to fourteen, to include:

  1. President of Penn Alumni during his or her term in office.
  2. Alumni Trustees: up to 13 trustees in number, elected by the alumni in accordance with rules established by Penn Alumni with the concurrence of the Trustees, to serve for terms of five years, from among those persons who have received degrees from the University. A regional alumni trustee may not succeed himself or herself in office, but may be elected in another class.

 

Trustees Emeriti

Charter trustees shall be designated as trustees emeriti upon attaining the age of seventy (70), or as early as age sixty-five (65), if they so choose. Other trustees who have been elected to two five-year terms in any class shall be eligible for election as trustees emeriti upon attaining the age of seventy (regardless of the age at which their ten-year term of service ends or the time remaining in their second term if they turn seventy before its conclusion) or, in rare circumstances, at an earlier age. Trustees emeriti shall enjoy all the rights and privileges of other trustees with the exceptions set forth in section 2.9, section 4.5, section 5.2, and section 6.2. At the age of eighty (80) or at any time before, emeritus trustees may choose to maintain emeritus status or step down from the board, acquiring the honorific title of "honorary trustee."

 

Commonwealth Trustees

Four non-elected officials appointed by the following representatives of the Pennsylvania General Assembly: President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the Minority Leader in the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, each of whom shall have the power to appoint one Commonwealth Trustee in accordance with Act No. 1994-25A.

 

Special Trustees

Up to two in number, to serve for a term determined by the Chair and approved by the Trustees Executive Committee, as defined at the time of their election, and whose service is in the best interests of the University to meet a particular need or purpose.
