As advocates and stakeholders, the Board provides a clear, compelling and respected voice to Embry-Riddle’s state, federal and industry partners.

The Board of Trustees of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the institution’s governing body. Trustees volunteer their time and put their experience as aerospace and aviation innovators, executives and entrepreneurs, international financiers, military officers, pilots, public servants and as an astronaut, in service to the university. Professional achievement has earned Board members international and national honors, including Aviation Icon status, the Presidential Rank Award, Distinguished Statesman of Aviation Award, Wright Brothers Master Pilot designation, National Lifetime Aviation Industry Leader Award and induction in the Astronaut Hall of Fame. Civic and educational groups have also recognized Board members for their contributions as philanthropists and transformational leaders. Nearly half of the Board are graduates of the university.
