The President of the University is the principal executive officer of the University. The Provost of the University is the second in command to the President of the University. Whenever the President of the University is away from campus, or incapacitated for some defined period of time, the Provost assumes the responsibilities and authority of the Office until President of the University can resume normal duties.

The President of the University shall exercise such powers as are inherent in the position in promoting, supporting, or protecting the interests of the University and in managing and directing all of its affairs; may issue directives and executive orders not in contravention of existing board policies; shall be responsible for all business policies as heretofore enacted or modified or hereafter established subject to the general policies established by the board; shall instruct the proper administrative officers to prepare an annual budget which upon approval, shall be recommended to the board; shall be responsible for the preparation of the annual reports of the Board; shall exercise such other powers, duties, and responsibilities as are delegated or required by the board; shall attend all meetings of the Board of Trustees and be present for executive sessions when deemed appropriate by the Chair pro tempore.

In case of a vacancy in the office of the President of the University, the board at the time of the announcement that the President of the University is leaving shall elect immediately an Acting President for the interim period who shall exercise the functions of the President of the University as stated in these Bylaws while serving as Acting President of the University. In the event of the death or incapacity of the President of the University, the Provost will assume the responsibilities and authority of the Office until the President pro tempore of the Board of Trustees can convene the available members to take appropriate action to assure continuity in the affairs of the University until the board will make arrangements for an Acting President.
