From Kathyrn Leroux, Chair

KathrynLerouxAs one of Ontario’s twenty-four public community colleges, Algonquin College is governed by a Board that strives to provide learners with hands-on skills and knowledge, preparing them for lifelong career success.

Board members play an important role, flowing from their responsibility as trustees of the public interest. Examples of Board activities include:

  • Adoption of policies for the delivery of high quality instruction and efficient management of College resources;
  • Approval of programs of instruction, operating and capital budgets;
  • Monitoring of College performance in key educational and administrative areas; Appointment of advisory committees to ensure continuing relevance of College programs.

2015-16 marks an especially exciting year for our Board, as we lead the development of a brand new Strategic Plan for the College. This is one of the most important functions of a Board, and this upcoming plan will be crucial in guiding the College through a time of great change and great opportunity in the higher education sector.

I hope you will join us in these discussions and help us shape the future of this vital public institution. I would like to extend an open invitation to attend our board meetings which are held several times per year and are open to the public. You can find the schedule of meetings here.

Thank you for your interest , and we look forward to seeing you at a future Board meeting!
