The board of directors of a municipal university, college, or other educational institution, as to all matters not otherwise provided by law, has all the authority, power, and control vested in or belonging to such municipal corporation as to the sale, lease, management, and control of the estate, property, and funds, given, transferred, covenanted, or pledged to such municipal corporation for the trusts and purposes relating thereto and the government, conduct, and control of such institution. The board may, unless prohibited by the terms of the trust under which such estate or property is held, sell, or lease perpetually or for any less period and with or without a privilege of purchase at a fixed price, any part of the whole of any such estate or property, and on sale, or on an election to purchase under a lease containing a privilege to purchase, may convey or transfer such estate or property. If any lease with a privilege of purchase at a fixed price has previously been executed and delivered by the board, or any board preceding it in office, for any part or the whole of any such estate or property, such board shall, on an election to purchase under the lease, convey such premises. All instruments affecting real estate shall be executed on behalf of the board by such of its officers as it designates by resolution, authorizing the execution of such instrument, and all deeds so executed shall convey all the title of the board and of such municipal corporation in and to the real estate so conveyed. The board may:
(A) Appoint a clerk and all agents proper and necessary for the care and administration of the trust property and the collection of the income, rents, and profits thereof;
(B) Appoint the president, secretaries, professors, tutors, instructors, agents, and servants, necessary and proper for such institution and fix their compensation;
(C) Provide all the necessary buildings, books, apparatus, means, and appliances;
