Anne Arundel Community College’s governing board is comprised of eight trustees who are appointed by the governor with Maryland Senate advice and consent (Code Education Article, secs. 16-101 through 16-103).
Trustees each serve a term of six years with the exception of the student trustee, who serves for one year. The board elects a chair and vice chair annually.
Student Member Selection
The college seeks applications each spring for the student member of the Board of Trustees. Applicants are interviewed by a committee of students and staff. The committee recommends the candidate to the AACC president, who sends the candidate's name to the governor's office for appointment.
