Regional Board of Trustees

Corning Community College receives its authority from the State University of New York (SUNY) and is governed by fourteen trustees.

Seven trustees are appointed by its supporting counties—Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben. Six are appointed by the Governor of New York State, and one is elected by the students. All trustees are residents of the College region and serve nine-year terms, except the student trustee who serves a one-year term. Their terms of service vary in length, and they can be reappointed for extended terms.

The Board is scheduled to meet in the Business Development Center at 24 Denison Parkway West in Corning, New York:

  • Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 6:15 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 6:15 p.m.
