The President of Columbia University is the highest officer of the university. The President is equivalent to a Chief Executive Officer in a corporation, and the Trustees are equivalent to his or her Board of Directors. The President is a member ex officio, but not the Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

Since Frederick A. P. Barnard, Presidents have published public reports to the trustees. Originally an annual occurrence, the recent trend has been to five-year reports.
