Board of Directors
Hilltop is governed by a Board of Directors composed of 6 Hilltop parent members and 6 public members (usually from the KU community). Hilltop parent board members are elected each spring for the coming year. Because Hilltop is designated as a University Affiliated Corporation and receives administrative support from the Office of Student Success, a representative of that office serves as a Hilltop board member. The board functions in an advisory, policy-making capacity.
