Board of Governors

Empowered by the College and Institute Act of British Columbia (1996), the Langara College Board of Governors’ primary responsibility is to oversee the strategic direction and management of the College and ensure it carries out its mission. To that end, the primary functions and roles of the College Board are to establish the institution’s purpose and direction; to ensure the institution is effectively and efficiently managed; to establish policies that have institution-wide application; and to provide effective communication with the community.

There are eight government appointed, four elected, and two ex-officio Members of the Langara College Board of Governors. The elected members represent their group as a whole – i.e.: the two student-elected members represent the Langara College student body as a whole; the faculty-elected member represents Langara College Faculty Association members; and, the support staff-elected member represents Langara College CUPE (local 15) members.

Education Council

The role and responsibilities of Education Council are defined by the College and Institute Act of British Columbia (1996). It is responsible for approving curriculum content and policies concerning student evaluation, withdrawal, academic standing, appeals, grading, and awards for excellence. The Education Council is composed of ten elected faculty members, four student-elected members, two support-staff elected members and four educational administrators appointed by the Langara president.
