The American Trinity University is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian, coeducational University organized as a corporation under the laws of the state of California, subjected to any limitations contained in the general nonprofit corporation laws of the State. The University operates in compliance with the California Education Code and the California Code of Regulations under the authority of the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education(BPPE).
The University is governed by an appointed Board of Trustees. The President of American Trinity University is the University's chief executive officer who, together with the Board of Trustees, sets the agenda for the strategic vision for the future of the University while embracing its core mission, its sense of community, its overall intellectual environment and providing financial leadership and operating management at the highest possible levels. Within this context, the President is responsible for maintaining the University's focus so that the goals, the objectives and the integrity of its mission and purpose are maintained and met.
The Board of Trustees represents the ultimate and inclusive authority within the University. Their authority is derived from the University' bylaws. The Board of Trustees is the primary policy-making body of the University. Within this context- a policy is a general rule or principle, or a statement of intent, or direction, that provides guidance to administrators in reaching decisions with respect to the particular matters entrusted to their care. All policies of the University must be approved by the Board before they become official policies. The Board has promulgated bylaws delineating the policy-making process for policy issues that require Board approval. In certain areas, the Board delegates its policy-making authority to the President. However, final approval still resides with the Board. In some instances there are statutory requirements of formal action on certain issues due to provisions written into the University's original bylaws. These constraints limit the delegation of authority by the Board of Trustees on certain policy issues and responsibilities.
