The new student trustee faces a challenging introduction to the board, the college and the art of trusteeship. This workshop is designed to help student board members become knowledgeable, influential, education policy-makers. It also provides the opportunity to meet and talk with other student trustees from around the state.
Participants will receive the 2018 Trustee Handbook and Effective Student Trustees by Nick Kachiroubas, as well as other information for student trustees.
