Excerpts of the Board of Trustee Bylaws

Classes of Trustees and Terms of Office

Section 2.03. There shall be three (3) classes of Trustees:
(1) Public
(2) Faculty
(3) Student

Public Trustees are individuals who are not employed by or enrolled at Fielding. The governance committee will nominate candidates for the position to be vetted and elected by the Board. Term of office of Public Trustees shall be one three (3) year term. Public Trustees may be elected for two subsequent three (3) year terms for a total of 9 years of service. A period of at least one (1) year must lapse before such person is again eligible for election as a Public Trustee. A Public Trustee who has previously served as a Faculty Trustee and/or Student Trustee is eligible for three (3) 3-year terms as a Public Trustee.

Two Faculty Trustees will serve on the Board of Trustees. The Senate Leadership Committee will nominate candidates from among faculty applicants for the position to be vetted and elected by the Board. Term of office of Faculty Trustees shall be one three (3) year term. Faculty Trustees may not be elected for a second consecutive term unless they are completing the term due to a vacancy. A faculty Trustee who is completing a term due to vacancy is eligible for election to another term if the term they are completing is more than half completed when they fill the vacancy (see section 2.06 d). Otherwise, a period of at least one (1) year must lapse before such person is again eligible for election as a Faculty Trustee. However, a former Faculty Trustee shall be eligible for service as a Public Trustee after leaving FGU employment.

Two Student Trustees will serve on the Board of Trustees. Programs will nominate students who are in good standing to be vetted and elected by the Board. Term of office of Student Trustees shall be one two (2) year term. Student Trustees may not be elected for a second consecutive term unless they are completing the term due to a vacancy. A student Trustee who is completing a term due to vacancy is eligible for election to another term if the term they are completing is more than half completed when they fill the vacancy (see section 2.06 d). A period of at least one (1) year must lapse before such person is again eligible for election as a Student Trustee. However, a former Student Trustee shall be eligible for service as a Public Trustee after graduating FGU.

 

Powers

Section 2.08. Subject to the provisions of the California General Corporation Law and any limitations in the articles of incorporation and these Bylaws, all corporate powers of the Corporation shall be exercised, its properties controlled, and its affairs conducted by the Board. The following powers are exclusively delegated to the Board:

(a) To adopt, amend, or repeal the Bylaws of the Corporation.

(b) To affirm the general policies of the Corporation and see to their faithful execution.

(c) To manage the financial affairs of the Corporation so as to ensure the Corporation’s financial stability and the continued integrity of its academic programs, including the power to borrow and incur indebtedness for the purposes of the Corporation, set tuition and other charges, and to approve its annual operating and capital budgets.

(d) To affirm the strategic plan of the Corporation so as to ensure the Corporation’s long-term viability.

(e) To grant academic honors and issue certificates or diplomas and confer degrees evidencing the completion of prescribed courses of instruction. Such certificates and diplomas or degrees shall be issued under the corporate seal and with the signatures of such officers of the corporation, as the Trustees deem expedient. 

(f) To approve and confer honorary degrees and emeritus status. 

(g) To select, appoint, or remove the President of the Corporation, and to set the terms and conditions of his or her employment.

 

OFFICERS OF THE CORPORATION

Number and Titles

Section 3.01. The officers of the Corporation shall be a Chair, a Vice Chair, President, Treasurer, and Secretary and such other officers and assistant officers as the Board may determine. The Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary shall be elected from among the Trustees. The criteria for election of a Chair, a Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary are: a) must have been on the Board for at least one year; and b) must have demonstrated substantive involvement in the work of the Board. Neither the Secretary nor the Treasurer may serve as the Chair or President at the same time.

The Chair of the Board for the preceding year will continue to serve for one year with the title of Immediate Past Chair, unless the Chair succeeds herself or himself, in which case this title will remain vacant. If the regular Board term of the Immediate Past Chair is lapsing with his or her term as Chair, the Immediate Past Chair will continue as a Board member for one additional year. The Chair may request the Immediate Past Chair to assume responsibility as the Chair directs, including service on the Executive Committee.

(Duties of the President)

The President shall be the chief executive officer of the Corporation and shall in general, subject to the control of the Board, supervise and control all of the business and affairs of the Corporation. The President shall, subject to the direction of the Board except by action of the Trustees otherwise delegating the authority, appoint and remove, employ and discharge, and prescribe the duties and fix the compensation of all agents, employees, and clerks of the Corporation except as provided in Article 2.08 (c). The President shall perform all duties incident to the office and such other duties as may be required by law, the Articles of Incorporation of this Corporation, or these Bylaws, or which may be from time to time assigned to this officer by the Board. In the event of the absence or disability of the President to act, the Board will appoint an Interim President for an interim period.

(Duties of the Treasurer)

In general, the Treasurer shall perform all duties incident to the office of Treasurer, including, but not limited to, the oversight of the financial functions of the Corporation, and such other duties as may be required by law, the Articles of Incorporation of this Corporation, or these Bylaws, or which may from time to time be assigned to this officer by the Board. Any instrument, check or note to which the Corporation shall be a party and which would obligate the Corporation to an amount determined by resolution of the Board must be signed by the Treasurer and the President.
