Chapter 10: Board of Curators

10.080 Curator Participation in University Events

Executive Order No. 33, 1-26-05

The Board of Curators serves as the governing body for the University of Missouri System. Members are appointed by the Governor and are selected for their integrity, knowledge, experience and commitment to the institution. Members serve without compensation.

Board members attend University functions in their official capacity, as their schedules permit, because the events showcase University activities and provide opportunities to interact with faculty, students, alumni and friends of the University of Missouri.

  1. Invitations to members of the Board of Curators to attend University events in their official capacity must be mailed to the Secretary of the Board of Curators, 316 University Hall, Columbia, MO 65211. The Secretary of the Board of Curators will forward the invitation(s), assist in making arrangements, including coordinating attendance for events that occur the same day. Requests for Board members to participate in the event’s program should be made through the Secretary of the Board of Curators a minimum of two weeks in advance of the event.
  2. In deference to the time and commitment of those who serve on the Board of Curators, invitations to members of the Board to attend University events in their official capacity should be complimentary and paid for by the campus or department unit extending the invitation.   
    1. The invitation should clearly reflect the complimentary nature
      and be extended to both the Curator and spouse or guest.
    2. If the member of the Board of Curators would also have been
      included on an invitation list because of alumni status or membership (e.g., a donor society), the base invitation should be complimentary and any additional contribution would be at the discretion of the individual curator and paid for personally.
  3. When a member of the Board of Curators is included on an invitation list because of alumni status or membership (e.g., a donor society), and there is no expectation that the individual should attend in his/her official capacity, the invitation should be sent to the curator’s home address, which may be obtained by contacting the Secretary of the Board of Curators. The individual will attend at his/her discretion, and pay for the event and any donation personally.
