“Community college boards ensure the wise and prudent delivery of education, a critical local and state resource, on behalf of the people in their communities. They are guardians of and stewards for the public’s interests. Trustees, as members of boards, ensure that the community college district fulfills its responsibility to lead and serve its ever-changing communities.” – CCLC, Trustee Handbook, p.23, Rev. 2013
