As the College’s governing body, the Board of Trustees is responsible for the school's educational mission and fiscal policies.

The Columbia College Board of Trustees members serve a term of four years and are eligible to serve as many as three consecutive terms.

We're grateful for the guidance and time investment we receive from our Board. It's critical to have a community of leaders standing behind our College and our students.
