Board of Governors

The members of the Marianopolis College Board of Governors are stewards of the College’s Mission and Vision. They are elected or appointed from among the College’s primary stakeholders: faculty and staff, students, parents, alumni and friends of the educational community. These dedicated volunteers are responsible for fostering effective leadership and for furthering the College’s role as a premier institution of higher learning. Collectively, the Board ensures the institution’s financial health; it develops and oversees the strategic plan; it hires, supports and evaluates the Director General; and promotes the College’s heritage.
