Wake Tech Board of Trustees

Each community college in North Carolina is governed by a volunteer board of trustees, with specific duties defined by state law. Among their responsibilities, trustees establish policies for the college to follow, approve the college’s budget each year and serve as advocates for the college. When there is a vacancy in the college’s presidency, the trustees are responsible for choosing a new president.

About the Board

Wake Tech is served by 12 appointed trustees. Four are appointed by the governor of North Carolina, four are appointed by the Wake County Board of Commissioners and four are appointed by the Wake County Board of Education. These trustees are appointed to four-year terms of office, and the appointments are staggered so that the board always has a blend of experienced and new trustees.

In addition to the 12 appointed trustees, Wake Tech's Student Government Association president serves as an ex-officio member of the Board of Trustees. The SGA president is encouraged to share ideas and concerns with the board but does not vote on board issues.

Wake Tech's president serves as secretary to the Board of Trustees but is not considered a member of the board.
