The American College of the Mediterranean (ACM) is a nonprofit educational institution that is governed by a board of directors. The current board has nineteen members, eight of whom are alumni of ACM's study abroad institute, the Institute for American Universities (IAU). This governing board's fundamental responsibility is to chart the institution's course and ensure that the institution has the resources it needs to fulfill its mission. The board is responsible for the president's appointment and oversight of his duties. The board supports the president to ensure the institution’s engagement in sound strategic planning. The board also has a unique fiduciary role in finance and budgeting, endowment and investment management, and preserving and expanding physical resources, including its campuses in Aix-en-Provence, France and Barcelona, Spain. The board is required to meet at least once per year in person.
