UNIVERSITY OVERSIGHT

As part of USRA's governance structure, 105 Ph.D. granting universities oversee USRA to ensure that it meets its public purpose.

Members ensure broad public oversight of the corporation, as it pursues its nonprofit purpose of "development and application of space-related science, technology, and engineering." The members elect an independent Board of Directors, which governs USRA and appoints the USRA President. University members receive no direct benefit from membership. Their oversight is provided solely as a public service, and all USRA activities are conducted without bias or preference.
