The Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is comprised of no fewer than 27 members and no more than 36 members. Members are elected by the Board in classes each serving for three-year terms. Six members, by virtue of their special position and relationship to the College, serve as designated trustees and include representatives of the supporting denomination, alumni council, faculty and students. These designated trustees are elected annually. Trustees can be re-elected to serve three successive terms if mutually desired by both the Board and the individual member.
The Board meets three times each year in either January or February and in June and October. Standing committees of the board are the Executive Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, Committee on Trusteeship, Finance Committee and Audit Committee. The board may establish additional committees as needed. These currently include the Advancement Committee, Facilities Committee, Investment Committee, Marketing Committee and Student Life Committee.
The Board is committed to serving the college not only by meeting its legal responsibilities for oversight but also by assisting the administration in developing the strategic plans for the college. Indeed, the Board desires to develop an effective, symbiotic partnership with the president and his or her administration.
