Board of Trustees

The Terra State Community Board of Trustees is composed of nine members appointed by the governor of Ohio with the advice and consent of the state Senate. 

Boards of trustees make and are accountable for many of the important decisions at the college and university level, often including: selecting and appointing their college and university presidents; approving personnel appointments and contracts; setting operating budgets, student tuition and fees; granting degrees; approving rules, regulations, changes in curriculum, programs and new degrees; and providing oversight and advice.
