Board of Governors

Recruitment for 2019

A tremendous opportunity exists for business and community leaders to join Fleming College's Board of Governors in Fall 2019 and be part of redefining the future of post-secondary education for our local communities, Ontario, Canada and beyond. Fleming works in partnership with community members, industry, stakeholders and partners, organizations, Trent University, Colleges Ontario, the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities, the regions that include the City of Kawartha Lakes and the City of Peterborough, Cobourg, Haliburton and beyond.

Fleming College is inviting applications from outstanding leaders from a variety of backgrounds to join our Board of Governors. Fleming College’s Board of Governors provides oversight to the strategic direction, the stewardship of resources, and ensures accountability to the public. Collectively, Governors bring their diverse backgrounds together to consider opportunities and risks from multiple perspectives and professional disciplines, supporting effective decision-making.
