Board of Trustees

Our Board members are called "trustees" for a reason. We trust each of them with the future of the university and our students. They bring to us diverse experience, invaluable knowledge and unwavering spirit. They are united in their drive and desire to help Central further its transformative educational experience, enriching the lives of students and the community. We thank them for their time, their service and for making a difference each and every day.
