The Board of Trustees directs Evergreen into the future, initiates policy and delegates authority to the president, who reports to the Board. The Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public. The Governor of Washington appoints seven of the members from the external community and alumni, and the eighth member is a student chosen by the governor from a group of nominees selected by campus peers.
