Board of Trustees
The government of the college is vested in a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees, whose regular members serve for four years and are eligible for re-election. Three additional members represent the alumni and serve for a single three-year term. The board meets twice a year. In the interim, the Executive Committee acts for the board. Administration of the college is by the president, the cabinet, and the faculty.
