North Florida Community College, like Florida’s other 27 community colleges, is governed by an independent, locally autonomous Board of Trustees. It is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees to establish the policies, in accordance with Florida Statutes and State Board of Education Rules, by which the mission of the College is accomplished. It is the President’s responsibility to implement these policies through the College administration, faculty and staff.
The North Florida Community College Board of Trustees is composed of nine members appointed by the Governor: three members are from Madison County; two members are from Suwannee County; and one each from Hamilton, Lafayette, Jefferson and Taylor Counties.
The Board of Trustees is granted authority as a body; no individual Board member may take official action without the consent of the entire Board.
The Board of Trustees conducts open meetings in accordance with Florida’s “Government in the Sunshine Law,” which stipulates that all discussions of college business by two or more Board members must be advertised and open to public attendance.
Board meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. The Trustees determine each August the meeting schedule for the coming year.
