Board of Visitors

The Wheaton College Board of Visitors is a national council made up of distinguished Christians who are committed to advancing the mission and priorities of Wheaton College.

Menu

While not a governing body, the Board of Visitors maintains a level of access and input commensurate with the strategic role it plays in advancing the mission of the College. Collaboration with the President, Board of Trustees, Senior Administrative Cabinet, and the wider campus community is designed to be mutually beneficial and warmly personal, an act of service to Christ through the ministry of Wheaton College.
