A corporation’s Bylaws supplements its Articles of Incorporation by spelling out the details of corporate operation and governance. Carnegie Mellon University’s Bylaws cover such topics as the election and powers of trustees, the conduct of board and committee meetings, and the designation and powers of corporate officers, among others. Any changes or additions to the Bylaws must be approved by the Board of Trustees.

The Bylaws and the Articles of Incorporation, are the two primary official documents for the university.
