The Board of Trustees is the legal governing body of the College for Creative Studies and its final institutional authority. The Board’s responsibilities include policy-making, stewardship of the institution’s financial and physical resources, appointment and supervision of the institution’s chief executive officer, long-range planning, and representation of the institution to external communities. It delegates day-to-day management of the institution to the President.
The full Board ordinarily meets four times a year. Much of the Board’s work is conducted through its committees, which include the Executive; Education; Facilities; Finance and Audit; Investment; Advancement; and Nominating Committees. The Executive Committee meets about five times a year, and the other committees meet two to four times each year.
