RTI Board of Governors

Corporate Governance

Leadership representing research universities and business and scientific communities

Our governing structure comprises the members of the corporation, the board of governors, and the corporate officers.

The members of the corporation, representing Duke University and The University of North Carolina, meet annually as the nonprofit equivalent of stockholders. They elect the governors, who represent the business and scientific communities.

Our primary governing body is the board of governors, which formulates policy consistent with our mission to improve the human condition by turning knowledge into practice. The board meets at least bimonthly and consists of up to 15 governors who represent the 17 University of North Carolina institutions, Duke University, and the business and scientific communities.

Corporate officers are senior management team members who are accountable to the board for specific aspects of corporate governance and financial management.
