The Board of Trustees are a group of volunteers that act as a governing body of the corporation that is Pacific University. Pacific's Board of Trustees became an independently functioning group for the academic institution with the first documentation of a full meeting in 1848, just a year prior to Pacific's charter approval by the civil government in Oregon. The trustees consist of several committees that manage a number of aspects of the university such as the auditing committee, nominating committee, finance committee, property committee and the executive committee.
