The Board of Trustees of College of Marin consists of seven voting members who are chosen at large on a nonpartisan basis in public elections held in odd-numbered years. These members serve four-year terms which are staggered. A non-voting student member of the Board is elected by the student body for a one-year term. The Board of Trustees, composed of community representatives and responsible to the public, has the authority to appoint President/Superintendent and other administrative personnel, faculty members, and members of the Board in the case of vacancies.
