The Center is overseen by the office of the president, but after an appropriate start-up period may be transferred to the oversight of the provost or a collegiate dean. The Center is directed by a faculty member, who will receive a stipend and course release appropriate for the scope of the work required. The director has been selected by the president, the provost, and the deans of the College of Arts and Sciences and Hillyer College.
The Center receives advice and counsel from an Advisory Board, appointed by the president, in consultation with the director and the deans of the College of Arts and Sciences and Hillyer College. Members come from either the University or the general community.
