BSA Board of Directors
Brookhaven Science Associates is governed by a 16-member Board of Directors: Five appointed by the SUNY Research Foundation, five by Battelle, and one each from six of the nation's premier research universities: Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton, and Yale.
The Board is responsible for:
• Setting overall Laboratory policy and direction (see Science & Technology Steering Committee);
• Conducting an annual review of overall contract performance;
• Conducting independent corporate self assessments; and
• Providing advice and assistance to the Laboratory Director on significant scientific, technical, or management issues.
Dr. Ronald D. Townsend is the current chair of the BSA board.
The BSA Board will be supported by several committees, including the Scientific & Technology Steering Committee, which will commission peer reviews of BNL's programs and scientific facilities, and advise the Board on scientific direction, user facility operation, and management and policy matters that directly affect the Laboratory's science mission.
