The Board of Governors is the most senior decision-making body at Lethbridge College. Public Board members are appointed by an Alberta Government Order in Council and generally serve a three-year term of office, with an opportunity to serve a further three-year term. Internal representatives to the Board (i.e. the Academic , Non-Academic Staff and Student Representatives) are appointed directly by the Minister of Alberta Enterprise and Advanced Education (formerly Alberta Advanced Education and Technology) for terms as outlined in the Post Secondary Learning Act.
The Mandate and Roles Document for the Board of Governors can be found at the following link — Lethbridge College Board of Governors Mandate and Roles .

It includes the Code of Conduct for the Board and was first approved by the Board at its January 2010 meeting and subsequently by the Minister in February 2010.
This Mandate and Roles Document is reviewed and endorsed annually by the Board of Governors and in the fall of 2011, the Board recommended a revised mandate to the Honourable Mr. Greg Weadick, Minister of Alberta Advanced Education and Technology. The revised mandate was approved by the Minister on October 25, 2011.
