Organizational History

The terms for the first Board of Trustees began in April of 1889. In 1973, legislation provided for a separate board for UNC with trustee terms beginning July 1st. Prior to this, there had been one Board of Trustees for the College's multiple locations in Greeley, Alamosa, and Gunnison. During this time, members of the Board of Trustees included local residents from each location. After the change in legislation, the University of Northern Colorado Board of Trustees held its first meeting in May of 1973. Beginning on July 1, 1975, a studen trustee was added to the Board. This position would be filled by a full time junior or senior student at UNC and elected to the posistion by the student body. The student trustee would be a non-voting position on the board. Beginning on July 1, 1981, a faculty trustee was added to the board. This position would be filled by a faculty member of UNC and would be elected at large by members of the faculty. The faculty trustee would be a non-voting position on the board. As of 2018 the current make up consists of nine members total. Seven of the members are appointed by the State Governor and serve four year terms. The other two members include a faculty trustee and a student trustee.
