Board of Governors

2017-2018 Board of Governors

The Board of Governors is the legal governing body of the College, composed of both volunteer representatives from the local community (12 external members, appointed) and representatives of the student, support, administrative and academic staff groups (4 internal members, elected). By virtue of office, the college president is a voting member of the Board. One student observer (non-voting, elected) rounds out Fleming's Board.
