College of the Rockies is governed, like all other colleges in the province, by the College and Institute Act of B.C. The Board of Governors is empowered by this Act to manage, administer and control the property, revenue, expenditures, business and affairs of the institution.
The Board represents the public, and oversees the affairs of the college, and determines and demands appropriate institutional performance. The Board focuses on policy and strategic leadership rather than administrative detail, and has developed and maintains a clear distinction between Board and Presidential roles.
The Board's primary responsibility is to oversee the strategic direction and management of the college, and to ensure it carries out its Mission in concert with its Vision and Values.
For more information and insight on Board roles and responsibilities, please refer to the Act, By-Laws and Board Charter in the Policies and Guidelines section.
