The affairs of the College are managed by a self-perpetuating board of directors consisting of no fewer than 20 nor more than 35 members elected annually at the spring meeting of the board.
Members of the board are elected for three-year terms and include the president of the College, the president of the Alumnae Association, and three alumnae class representatives consisting of one representative from each of the three most recent graduating classes. A director (excluding the president of the College, who has no limit on the number of years or terms he or she can serve) cannot serve more than three successive three-year terms on the board.
The president of the College and the president of the Alumnae Association are ex-officio members of the board. The president of the College and the chairman of the board are ex-officio members of all committees of the board of directors.
