About the Board

The CCSNH Board of Trustees is designed to be broadly representative of the New Hampshire communities and industry sectors that CCSNH serves. Members are drawn from business & industry, education, healthcare, law enforcement, career and technical education, the mechanical trades, technology, CCSNH employees, students and alumni, the community service sector and the public. The 24 voting members of the board are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the NH Executive Council. The Board sets strategic goals for the System and provides oversight at the policy level for the colleges within the System. Please see meeting agendas and minutes and board policies, system policies and approved fees.
