NBCC moved to self-governance with the proclamation of the New Brunswick Community Colleges Act on May 29, 2010. Since that time, the Board of Governors became the governing body of the College. The new governance model has created an autonomous Crown Corporation with a President and CEO who, on behalf of the six Anglophone NBCC campuses, reports to the Board of Governors.
The Board is responsible for establishing the governing policies that direct the College in its vision of being a high quality student-focused post-secondary institution. Its goal is to enhance the social and economic well-being of New Brunswick through training and education.
The Board of Governors is comprised of twelve (12) members appointed by the Minister of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour and three (3) members from within the College, who are selected by their peers to represent the following groups: academic, non-academic and student.
