Biola University's leadership - including the Board of Trustees, the President and the President's Administrative Council (PAC) - is charged with guiding the university into its new century of strength as we aspire to go where God leads. Biola's leadership team has committed itself to prayerfully seek God's will for the university and to establish accountabilities - clearly stated goals - that align with the resulting overall strategic vision that the Lord provides.
The Board of Trustees is comprised of 24 board members who handle all corporate duties for Biola University and as a result set broad policies that govern the institution. This governing board is accountable for delegating responsibilities to the president to ensure that the university operates within those policies.
The university president, Barry H. Corey, is the chief executive officer of the corporation. As such, the president carries the ultimate responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the university through his direct reports.
The President's Administrative Council consists of the president, vice presidents, and select university administrators. The role of the PAC is to foster the exchange of significant information between the educational and resource enterprises, to serve as an advisory board to the president, and to facilitate decisions on operational matters that impact the university as a whole.
