Board of Trustees

The Franklin College Board of Trustees includes a maximum of 40 elected voting members, each serving a three-year term. The board’s primary roles include authority and responsibility for establishing the character, purpose and policies of the College, instituting and supporting fundraising efforts, establishing and reviewing educational programs, approving academic degrees and establishing the College’s annual budget. In addition, the board authorizes construction of new buildings and renovations on existing facilities, changes in tuition and fees, purchases of land, buildings and major equipment, and faculty-tenure appointments. All members serve on working committees in support of these areas, and there is a board chair who serves as primary liaison to the College president.
