Board of Governors

Origin and Role of the Board

The Nova Scotia Community College moved to self-governance with the proclamation of the Community Colleges Act on April 1, 1996. With this event, the Board of Governors became the governing body of the College. It is responsible for establishing the governing policies that direct the College in its pursuit to enhance the social and economic well-being of Nova Scotia through training and education. The Board appoints the President to provide the general management and direction for the programs, services, and business affairs of the College.
