The Board of Trustees is the policy-making body of the College and is ultimately responsible for setting the larger agenda for the institution. The Board is comprised of representatives from private, for-profit companies, education, and non-profits. The Cambria County Commissioners appoint 12 members to our Board of Trustees. Three additional members are board-appointed from locations in which the College has an academic center, and the Student Senate President serves as an honorary, non-voting member. The Board of Trustees meet at 6:00 PM on the 4th Tuesday of February, April, June, August, October, and in December the meeting is held on the 3rd Tuesday.
