The Alabama Community College System Board of Trustees plays a critical role in the education of hundreds of thousands of adults each year. Our Trustees serve as guardians for the Alabama Community College System’s missions and goals, with the Governor serving as chair of the Board by virtue of elected office. Remaining board members are appointed from eight districts, with one statewide member and an ex-officio liaison from the State Board of Education.
Meeting monthly, board member duties include:
- designating rules and regulations for the government of community and technical colleges,
- prescribing the course of study to be offered and the conditions for granting certificates, diplomas and/or degrees,
- accepting gifts, donations, property, and devices for the benefit of community and technical colleges, and
- establishing a performance-based allocation process that is equitable and compatible with the services and programs offered by each individual campus.
