District Board of Trustees Overview
Each of the 28 community colleges in Florida's statewide system is under the local
control of a lay District Board of Trustees composed of citizens who serve without
pay and are legally vested with decision making power in all matters of college policy,
programs, building, budget and personnel. Each trustee is appointed by the governor.
Eight Orange and Osceola County citizens form the Valencia College District Board
of Trustees. Meeting in regular sessions, these civic-minded individuals contribute
their time and talent to guiding the development of Valencia College so that it remains
responsive to the educational needs of its local community.
