About the Board of Trustees

The Highland Community College Board of Trustees is a governing body consisting of seven members elected by the citizens in the Highland district, and a student representative elected by the student body. Trustees are responsible for hiring the College President, approving other full-time appointments and positions, and establishing policy for the financing, governance, operation, and administration of the College. The Board of Trustees delegates responsibility to the administration, faculty and staff for the practices and procedures that accomplish the mission of the college. The legal statutes guiding the operation of the College are found in the Illinois Public Community College Act.

The meetings are open to the public and normally held in the Robert J. Rimington Board Room (H-228) on the Highland campus.
