Board of Trustees

About the Board

Trustees are elected to four-year terms and may serve three consecutive terms (12 years). The Board of Trustees has fiduciary responsibility for the governance of the College. Through its work as a full board and seven committees, it supervises and monitors the institution’s broad policies. The full Board meets three times a year, twice on campus and once off-campus. Committees meet at least three times a year though some meet more frequently to fulfill their responsibilities.

The committees of the Board include:

  • Executive
  • Academic and Student Affairs
  • Alumni Affairs and Development
  • Audit
  • Budget and Finance
  • Investment and Trusteeship
