Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to study the board of trustees of American research universities by historical analysis method, survey method and other methods. The board of trustees is the most distinctive higher education governance system in the United States. And research universities are the main strength of American higher education. By studying the history and development, type and scale, responsibilities and mode of operation of American research universities’ board of trustees, the results indicate that the board of trustees exercises its power under the guarantee of relative laws and regulations. In addition, there is a clear division of labor between the board of trustees and the principal of the university. Third, the board of trustees has a good operating model. By studying the board of trustees system of American Research University, it is of great significance to promote the construction of other universities’ board of trustees system.
