GRCC hosts forum for Board of Trustee candidates

The Academic Governing Council (AGC), Faculty Association and Student Alliance hosted a community forum yesterday for the five candidates running for the three open Board of Trustee seats.

The format allowed each candidate to provide a five-minute introduction, biography and statement of reason for wanting to represent the community as a Board of Trustee member, including their philosophy of higher education, and perspective on our mission.

The candidates were also asked three questions in the following areas: the college’s values, the college’s ends as a series of pathways, and the role of the board and its members in a policy governance model.
