Organization

^TOP

The Board consists of thirty-four trustees together with the president of the College, who is ex officio a member of the Board. A chair of the Board is elected from the
members and serves no more than two successive three-year terms. Twenty-four trustees may be Board-elected trustees, and six are alumni-elected trustees.
Three additional trustees (class trustees) shall be elected, one from the class most recently graduated, and one each from the two preceding classes; each is
elected for a term of three years. The Board is the governing body of the College and retains all powers appropriate to its responsibilities as such regardless
of specific delegations of authority.

There have been fourteen presidents of the College:
