Harverton International University’s Leadership
Harverton International University ’s leadership is responsible for the strategic vision for the University.
The Office of the Provost, led by Provost …, fosters collaboration across the University and manages changes in policies and practices that affect the academic life of the university as a whole. The Schools are led by senior executives, deans and department chairs, who are responsible for HIU’s academic programs and curricula.
Harverton International University governing board performs the essential roles ordinarily associated with a board of trustees, while helping to shape the University’s agenda, inquiring into the quality and progress of its activities, and assuring that HIU remains true to its mission.
The University exercises fiduciary responsibility with regard to the University’s academic, financial, and physical resources and overall well-being. It consists of the President, the Chief Financial Officer, and other members known as Senior Executives. The University is in the process of expanding from seven to thirteen members and elaborating its committee structure as it is in the process of being established. The University engages with both questions of long-range strategy, policy, and planning as well as transactional matters of unusual consequence. It serves as a confidential sounding board for the President on matters of importance after establishment; meets with deans, vice presidents, and others from time to time to discuss a wide array of programs and plans; and is responsible for approving the University’s budgets, constructions, major capital projects, endowment spending, tuition charges, and other matters.
The Board of Directors, comprising twenty-five elected members, starting with eight members, as well as the President and the Chief Financial Officer of the University, who serve ex officio. Members are elected by soon to be established governing board, University officers, Harverton International University degree holders other than their peers (board of directors’ members). Typically, four Directors are elected each year to staggered six-year terms, from a slate of eight or more nominees. Drawing on the wide-ranging experience and expertise of its members, the Board exerts broad influence over the University’s strategic directions, provides counsel to the University leadership on priorities and plans, and has the power of consent to certain actions of the University. The Board’s chair functions include superintendence of the visitation process, the principal mechanism for periodic external review of the quality and direction of the University’s schools, departments, and selected other programs and activities. The Board carries out this responsibility largely through the operation of more than fifty committees, whose work is overseen by and reported to the Board.
