We’ve adopted a policy governance framework as our governance model, empowering college staff while ensuring necessary controls for accountability are maintained. In accordance with this model, our policy manual is organized into the four principles of policy governance:

  • governance process
  • board-president relationship
  • ends
  • executive limitations
Board-president relationship

The board has one employee: the president and CEO of the college. This set of policies describes how authority is delegated to the president and how she is evaluated.


Ends are the benefits the college seeks to achieve within its mission of inspiring and facilitating learning and innovation to meet economic and social needs.
