The Board of Governors uses a policy governance model.

Public board members are appointed by a Government of Alberta Order in Council and typically serve a three-year term of office with the opportunity to serve an additional three-year term. Internal representatives (i.e. the academic, non-academic and student members) are elected by their constituency group and appointed directly by the Minister of Advanced Education for terms outlined in the Post-secondary Learning Act.
