Board of Trustees

The function of the Board of Trustees of Albion College is to establish the goals of the College, determine its major features and policies, approve their implementation, and provide for the effective support, administration, and advancement of the College. The Board, in its responsibility for the College, is committed to the fulfillment of the academic needs and personal development of Albion students within the interests of society and its spiritual heritage.

The Board consists of up to 33 Board-elected members. The membership includes up to six trustees representing the United Methodist Church, which has been historically related to the College since the College’s founding in 1835, as well as two recent graduates elected to serve staggered, two-year terms. Term limits for trustees will normally be four terms of three years each (a total of 12 years), subject to positive evaluations.

Three full Board meetings—in October, February, and May—are held annually, with an option for an additional meeting during the summer by teleconference. Current members of the Board are listed below, including the year their terms expire.
