Community College District 509 Board of Trustees

The board is a deliberative, legislative body elected to govern the college in the best interest of the district and in accordance with Illinois law and the Constitution. They determine the policies which guide the institution, monitor its fiscal affairs, and oversee the administration of the college by the president and staff. The final resolution of any issue is decided by a vote of the majority.

Seven members of the board are elected at large from the district to six-year terms on a rotating basis. The student member is selected annually in April by fellow students.

The public is welcome to attend regular meetings and communicate with trustees. Go to elgin.edu/boardoftrustees to see meeting dates and learn more.
