Board of Trustees

Responsibilities

College of Eastern Idaho is governed by a volunteer, nonpartisan, five-member Board of Trustees who are elected at large from within Bonneville County for staggered terms. Trustees derive their authority from and hold office in accordance with Idaho Code §33-2107.

While no individual trustee is responsible for the overall governance of CEI, each trustee, acting as a board member, is critical to the direction of the College by preparing for and attending monthly meetings, serving on committees/as liaisons to specific areas of the College, and overall serving in the best interests of the CEI student body, employees, and surrounding community members. Currently, regular CEI Board of Trustee meetings are held at 6:00 PM on the fourth Thursday of each month, with special meetings occurring as needed. For more information on the roles and responsibilities of CEI Trustees, please see the Amended Board of Trustees Governance Policies.
