In practice, the management of the college on a day to day basis is done by the college administration, headed by the president, who is appointed by the Board of Governors. By legislation, the Selkirk College Board of Governors is responsible for management, administration and control of the property, revenue, business and affairs of the college.
Board of Governors
Board members play an important role, flowing from their responsibility as trustees of the public interest. The board carries out these activities through monthly board meetings which are open to the public. Review the latest board meeting minutes.
The Board of Governors is composed of external members who reflect the various sectors of the community served by the college and several internal members representing students, faculty, support staff plus the president. Learn more about the board members.
Examples of board activities include:
Adoption of policies for the delivery of high quality instruction and efficient management of the college
Approval of programs of instruction, operating and capital budgets
Monitoring of college performance in key educational and administrative areas
Appointment of advisory committees to ensure continuing relevance of college programs
Education Council (EDCO)
Under the College and Institutes Act, every college in BC is required to have an Education Council whose job is to oversee and ensure the quality of the institution's educational offerings. Learn more about the EDCO.
BC Education Quality Assurance (EQA)
Selkirk College has been EQA designated since the launch of the BC Education Quality Assurance program in 2010. EQA is a quality assurance designation that identifies BC public and private post-secondary institutions that have met or exceeded provincial government recognized quality assurance standards and offer consumer protection.
Selkirk College is guided by a set of policies which reflect our vision, mission and values while at the same time provide a foundation upon which we can achieve our stated goals in an environment of accountability and equality. The policies of the college are consistent with legislative requirement and the Ministry of Advanced Education directives.
Our Policy Review Committee reviews existing policy on a regular basis in order to incorporate the input of staff and to ensure that written policy reflects actual practice.
