Board of Trustees


Mount Marty College has benefited from the devotion, service, and contributions of Sisters, alumni, friends and supporters since 1936. From this broad constituency, only a limited number of individuals have been asked to accept the special responsibility and honor of serving as its Trustees.

Individual trustees are nominated by the Board of Trustees and approved by the Monastery Council of Sacred Heart Monastery, the College's sponsoring institution. Trustee terms are for four years with a Trustee being eligible to serve two four-year terms. The Board of Trustees meets three times per year, generally in the fall and then in February and May. Trustees also serve on committees established by the Board including Academic Affairs, Audit, Finance, Trusteeship, Institutional Advancement, Building and Grounds, and Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.

The Board of Trustees is the ultimate fiduciary of Mount Marty College and is charged with the general oversight of its institutional affairs in accord with its charter, bylaws, evolving statements of mission and purpose, and institutional plans.
