Board of Trustees

Formulation of major policies and ultimate budget authority at Northwest College rests with a seven-member Board of Trustees. Trustees represent the college’s tax district of Park County and are elected to four-year terms in compliance with Wyoming’s Enrolled Act 80 (HB 58-A).

Regular meetings are held the second Monday of each month, with special meetings called as necessary. A citizens’ open forum is on regular meeting agendas.

Visit the Board of Trustees page of the NWC website for more information.
