Sinclair Community College is a public institution of higher education (created pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 3354) operated by the Warren County Montgomery County Community College District and is part of the state system, which is coordinated by the Ohio Board of Regents.
The eleven-member Board for the College approves plans and internal policy decisions recommended by the President, administrative officers, faculty, and staff. Six trustees are appointed by the Montgomery County Commissioners, one is appointed by the Warren County Commissioners, and four are appointed by the Governor of Ohio. Members of the Board serve overlapping five-year terms and may be reappointed. The membership reflects a cross-section of the constituencies of the greater Dayton region. As granted under Section 3354.09 of the Ohio Revised Code, the Board has the power and authority to make final decisions about matters of educational policy, financial management, personnel appointments, and physical facilities development.
The Board's committees are the Personnel and Curriculum Committee, the Strategic Linkages Committee, and the Finance Committee. Committee meetings take place one week before the monthly board meeting.
Trustees bring to the Board a wide range of experience from the business, industrial, and educational communities of the greater Dayton region.
