Mission of the Board

Bold Vision. Responsible Action.

The Board of Trustees of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the university’s governing body.  Trustees include aerospace and aviation innovators, business leaders and entrepreneurs, international financiers, military officers, pilots, public servants, and an astronaut. 

Half of the Board are graduates of the university.  All share a belief that Embry-Riddle’s unique offerings in aviation, aerospace, engineering, business and other academic disciplines are unleashing ingenuity and transforming lives. 

Committed to the people and industries the university serves, the Board is also the steward of the university’s fiscal and human resources, sustaining and expanding excellence in Embry-Riddle’s academic, research and programmatic offerings at its two residential campuses and many worldwide locations. 

As advocates and stakeholders, the Board is also a voice to Embry-Riddle’s state, federal and industry partners.
