What does the Student Trustee do?

The student trustee offers a student's perspective and advice to the Board of Trustees at monthly and special Board meetings.  The student trustee is educated on upcoming programs, policies and expenses that will be presented to the Board for approval.  Using knowledge collected from the college's history, administrators, faculty, staff but most importantly the students, she/he will or will not approve of the communications presented for approval.

When are Board Meetings and why should a student care?

The Board of Trustees meets on the second Monday of the month at 6:30 and occasionally for special sessions in the Board Room (SSV 151).  Some of the most important programs, dates and expenses are approved by the Board of Trustees.
