Legal power and responsibility for the operation of Lower Community College rests with the board of trustees. The board of trustees establishes and reviews college policies and oversees the general management of the college.
The board is composed of five trustees, who are appointed by the governor of Washington State with the consent of the Senate. The board of trustees acts as a unit. As such, it represents the public interest and functions to ensure the basic fiscal integrity of the college.
Board members can serve up to two, five-year terms (the actual length of service may vary depending on several factors, such as when members depart before their term is up, gubernatorial election cycles, etc.).
Board of Trustee Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month in the Heritage Room in the LCC Administration Building, or as otherwise noted on the calendar.
