Governance

Member-Focused, Member-Led

Internet2 is governed by members of the Internet2 community. Individuals helping to provide the strategic direction, leadership and oversight for Internet2 include university presidents, chancellors, CIOs, industry and regional networking representatives, and researchers from the networking and discipline communities.

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees—which includes four standing committees, as well as special committees—provides strategic direction, leadership and oversight for Internet2. In 2006, the Board created the Internet2 Governance and Nominations Committee (GNC) to provide recommendations on improving governance. The GNC proposed a new board structure to better represent the diverse membership of Internet2, and the Board approved and implemented those recommendations.

In addition to providing seats for university presidents, the Board now includes representation from chief information officers, network researchers, discipline researchers, and industry partners.

Audit & Finance Committee
The Audit and Finance Committee is one of the standing committees and assists the Board of Trustees in fulfilling its fiduciary responsibilities relating to the accounting and financial reporting practices of the Corporation.

Program Advisory Groups
These groups provide an essential channel of community input to advise and guide the creation and direction of Internet2 programs and services.
