Fulfilling Our Mission
Elmhurst University is led by a cohesive team of trustees and administrative and academic leaders.
A private, independent college, Elmhurst is governed by a 35-member Board of Trustees. Day-to-day operations are directed by President Troy D. VanAken with the support of senior administrators in the President’s Cabinet.
Together, Elmhurst’s leaders provide strategic direction for the University in fulfilling its mission and preparing students to reach their full potential.
