State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education

CCCS is governed by an 11 member board called the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE). Nine board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate. There is one board member for each U.S. congressional district, plus two at-large members. No more than five members may be from any single political party. They have staggered four-year terms. The remaining two seats on the board are held by a community college faculty member and a student representative who serve in non-voting capacities for one year each.
