Trustees & Administration
Board of Trustees
Washington University's Board of Trustees is the chief governing body of Washington University in St. Louis. Please visit the Board of Trustees website for more information.
In 1871, Washington University co-founder and then-Chancellor William Greenleaf Eliot sought a gift from Hudson E. Bridge, a charter member of the university's Board of Directors, to endow the chancellorship. Soon after this endowment was received, the position was renamed the "Hudson E. Bridge Chancellorship."
The officers of the university administration are currently led by Chancellor Andrew D. Martin. University leadership is detailed on the Washington University website.
