Leadership and Governance

Babson’s leadership is responsible for the strategic vision for the College. Dr. Stephen Spinelli leads Babson College, as the 14th President of the College. The Office of the Provost, led by Provost Mark P. Rice, fosters collaboration across the College.

Babson College has one governing board—the Board of Trustees—and two advisory boards—the Board of Overseers and the Global Advisory Board.

Representing the highest level of service to Babson College, the Board of Trustees is comprised of dedicated alumni, parents, and friends, who meet formally as a group three times per year with regular communication between board meetings.

The Board of Trustees is the governing body for Babson College. The Board is primarily responsible for appointing the President, who leads and manages the institution; approving the College’s mission and purpose, institutional policies, and changes in academic programs; and overseeing the College’s finances and assets to ensure Babson’s continuing vitality and its ability to fulfill its mission now and for future generations.
