The following Board of Trustees Guidelines are a result of reviewing and revising what was adopted in the Fall of 1995. The need to revise was driven, primarily, by the college name change in 1998-99. More importantly, this task was undertaken to review the operational and conceptual purpose of the Board of Trustees. As we embark on the beginning of the new millennium, imaginary but practical leadership will be essential to continue to fulfill the mission of the college.

These guidelines take an enlightened approach to governance based on trust, empowerment, cooperation, delegation, and determination. They will assist us as we begin to build for the future. In short, they will serve as a vision into the future of board college relationships.
