The Lander Foundation is governed by a board made up of friends and alumni who are interested in the University's future and the future of higher education in South Carolina.

Foundation work is carried out through the following committees: Executive, Finance & Audit, Investment, Ad Hoc Development, Annual Gifts, and Ad Hoc Scholarship & Budget. The full board meets twice a year--in May and November--to deal with selected items of business and policy issues.

The term of office for a Foundation member is three years.  Members may be elected for a second, three-year term. They are then required to be off The Foundation board for one year before seeking re-election. The Foundation is audited annually.
