Indiana University

Created by the Indiana General Assembly in 1820, the Board of Trustees is Indiana University's governing board, legal owner, and final authority. The current nine-member board meets six times a year on various IU campuses around the state. The minutes from the Board of Trustees meetings include official acts, resolutions, policies, agreements, personnel actions, and other business records pertaining to the governance of Indiana University.

This website is the result of a cooperative project between the Indiana University Libraries Digital Collections Services, the Indiana University Archives, and the Board of Trustees Office to make historical and current meeting minutes available online, allowing full-text search and browsing.

The digital collection is updated with new meeting minutes as they are processed. To see the full coverage to-date, browse the minutes by year.

Copies of meeting minutes since 2021 are also available in the Archives of Institutional Memory.

Administrative action reports (AARs) were first included with the minutes in November 1987. Many of the minutes on this site include AARs, but some do not. Please contact the University Archives if you wish to request a copy of an AAR.

Although every effort has been made to assure accuracy in the encoded documents, the original paper versions of the minutes serve as the authoritative historical record. The University Archives houses the official paper copies of the minutes from 1835 to the present, except for the minutes from January 1859-June 1883, which were destroyed in the Seminary Square fire on July 12, 1883. To request access to the original version of any meeting minutes, please contact the University Archives.
