The Board of Visitors is a volunteer service organization of Athens State University.

The Board of Visitors exists both as a uniform entity for total university service, and is also divided into three equal entities to serve each of the respective Colleges of the University: College of Arts & Sciences; College of Business; and College of Education.

The Board of Visitors serves to assist the President and the Board of Trustees in promoting and advocating the overall quality and excellence of the University; to advise and assist the University in interpreting the vision, mission, programs, accomplishments and aspirations of the University; to help keep the University and its constituent parts informed of attitudes, opinions, concerns and expectations related to higher education in general and Athens State University specifically; and to advise and assist the University with respect to the advancement of the University in all aspects of its mission.
