BAU International University is a private institution of higher education. The control of university operations rests with its governing Board of Directors. BAU LLC was initially founded as a profit venture to secure necessary financing for university startup operations, but it has become a non-profit entity, and its federal tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status is currently pending with the IRS.
The main function of the Board of Directors, as described in the bylaws, is twofold: to develop policies for the advancement of BAU International University, and to support the president of the university with the implementation of those policies. In addition, BAU International University’s Board provides guidance, monitoring, and assistance to the president of the university in public affairs and building key alliances to assist in and support the growth of the university.
