The volunteer Foundation Board of Directors includes many Southeast alumni, regional business leaders, and supporters of the University. Board members come from not only the southeast Missouri region and the St. Louis area but also from across the country. In addition, the Board includes University administrators, faculty representatives and two student representatives. Last year, the Board also welcomed its first international alumnus.
The Board of Directors is responsible for establishing a continuous development operation to support scholarships and other strategic initiatives of Southeast; to encourage voluntary contributions regularly from alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and other organizations; and to oversee and recommend procedures relating to the investment of foundation assets.
