The Members of SMU are key stakeholders of SMU and play an important role in the overall governance structure of SMU. As is consistent with the importance attached to this position, the SMU's Constitution and the Singapore Management University Act expressly provide that the appointment of Members in SMU requires the approval of the Minister for Education.

The role of the Members is expressly stated in SMU's Constitution to be as follows - "Every member shall be bound to further, to the best of his ability, the objects, interests, and influence of the Company and shall observe all regulations, policies and procedures of the Company made by the Board of Trustees for the regulation and management of the affairs of the Company." - and it is important to note that the Members' participation is also a pre-requisite for all annual general meetings and extraordinary general meetings held by SMU. In addition, the approval of the Members is also required for any changes to SMU's Constitution.
