The Northwest Community College Board of Governors, working in concert with the College's Education Council, and according to provincial legislation, represents the people of the northwest region in determining appropriate organizational performance.
The Board approaches its task in a manner which emphasizes strategic leadership more than administrative detail, clear distinction of Board and staff roles, future rather than past or present, and proactivity.

The student representatives of the College Board must reflect the different programs of the institution. Therefore, the person receiving the highest number of votes will be declared to one position. The student receiving the next highest number of votes, who is in a different program from the first highest, will be declared elected to the second position.
NWCC will begin accepting nominations for student board positions on Monday September 12, 2016. Please visit the registration desk at your nearest campus for nomination forms!
