Members of the AISU Governing Board are protected under a Directors and Officers Insurance policy. Board members may wish to consult with individual insurance carrier to determine if there is a need for additional personal liability insurance coverage that would be obtained at personal expense.
In addition to several other sources, it is important for Board Members to be familiar with Utah Code Title 53A State System of Public Education found at https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title53A/53A.html.
In the case of AISU, it is also important for Board members to have or be willing to gain knowledge of the US EB5 Investment program, public/private entity contracting practices, business operations, financial best practices, academic best practices and requirements, and requirements for educating international students.
