Governance

CYA is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprising persons distinguished for their professional accomplishments in the areas of law, business, education, philanthropy and scholarship. Members of the Board volunteer their time and resources to support CYA and usually meet twice a year, once in the States and once in Greece.

CYA also has a Board of Advisors, whose members help ensure the continued excellence of CYA programs.

In addition, CYA has recently establisjed an Academic Advisory Roundtable, which brings study abroad professionals and faculty together with CYA faculty and staff in structured discussions. This informal yet serious exchange of inspiration and ideas focuses on the academic experience of CYA programs.
