Regional Board of Trustees

SUNY Corning Community College receives its authority from the State University of New York (SUNY) and is governed by fourteen trustees.

Seven trustees are appointed by its supporting counties—Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben. Six are appointed by the Governor of New York State, and one is elected by the students. All trustees are residents of the College region and serve seven-year terms, except the student trustee who serves a one-year term. Their terms of service vary in length, and they can be reappointed for extended terms.

 
Regional Board of Trustees Statement on Social Justice

As the governing body of an institution dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion, the Regional Board of Trustees of SUNY Corning Community College reaffirms the College’s mission to provide access to a high-quality education for all individuals in a safe and open environment. Accordingly, in light of recent events that serve a painful reminder of the role that systemic racism plays in our country, the College is strongly committed to standing up for the oppressed and the marginalized and to constantly improving our practices, policies and programs so that they are deeply rooted in guiding principles of social justice and reform. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the Regional Board of Trustees supports the President’s recently announced actions:
· Create town hall sessions and educational series on social justice, anti-racism, and equity for all students, faculty and staff at our college
· Enhance cultural competency training for all who lead our institution and deliver our courses, programs, and services
· Evaluate data to address disproportionate outcomes and identify issues of inequity and disparate treatment.
