Welcome

The Board of Trustees of Montgomery College is the institution's legal governing body and is comprised of ten community individuals who are appointed by the governor. 

The board derives its authority from Title 16 of the Education Article of the Annotated Code of the Public General Laws of Maryland, which provides the legal basis for the control and administration of Maryland's community colleges. The board conducts its meetings in accordance with the Maryland Open Meetings Act using the Robert's Rules of Order for the parliamentary procedure of meetings. 

The Board of Trustees exercises general control over the College. It is empowered:

  • to establish the salaries and tenure of the president, faculty, and other employees;
  • to acquire and dispose of property;
  • to arrange for cooperative use of facilities with the Board of Education;
  • to apply for and receive gifts and grants;
  • to establish entrance requirements and approve offerings consisting of two-year transfer programs, career/technical programs, and continuing education programs;
  • to set student tuition and fees;
  • to sue and be sued;
  • to solicit bids and make contracts; and
  • to enter into collective bargaining agreements with duly elected bargaining agents of College faculty and staff.
