How We're Governed

How We’re Governed:

Member-led, Member-driven

The College Board is a dynamic, member-led, mission-driven not-for-profit organization governed by an elected Board of Trustees with guidance from three national assemblies and six regional assemblies.

More than 6,000 two- and four-year colleges, universities, secondary schools and districts, higher education systems, and other nonprofit organizations compose the College Board.

Each member institution appoints delegates to serve on our three national assemblies:

  • Academic
  • College Scholarship Service
  • Guidance and Admission

Representatives share in the governance of the College Board and define its core strengths and values. They provide a direct link between institutions and the College Board. Representatives attend regional and national assembly meetings to give voice to concerns and cast votes on behalf of institutions.

Matters are typically presented to the membership at the annual meeting and include business such as approval of new members and election of College Board Trustees, who oversee a number of Committees and Advisory Panels.
