About the Board of Trustees

Hudson County Community College is governed by its Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees consists of the County Superintendent of Schools and 10 persons, eight of whom who are appointed by the appointing authority of the County with the advice and consent of the Board of Commissioners, and at least two of whom are appointed by the Governor. Trustees maintain their Trustee status until they are reappointed or replaced by the appointing authority.  The President of the College serves as an ex-officio member of the Board of Trustees without vote.  In addition, the student body elects one representative from the graduating class to serve as a non-voting member on the Board of Trustees for a term of one year. 
Trustees are the stewards of the College and as such are responsible for monitoring its performance relative to compliance with statutes, service to students and the community, and performance relative to comparable institutions.
