Emporia State University Foundation Board of Trustees

Foundation trustees are advocates for Emporia State. They use their talents and professional expertise to generate, acquire, and conserve the resources the University needs to fulfill its mission.

Trustees serve as role models for potential donors by generously contributing of their own time and resources. They are actively involved in university events and programs, and serve to find ways to meet the university's financial needs.
