Governance

Board of Regents

The highest governance authority at Luther College, Regina is invested in its Board of Regents. Regents are elected for a maximum of two 4-year terms. These elections occurred at the Luther College Corporation Meeting, which until 2017, was held during the biennial national convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

On December 5, 2018, Luther College’s new Act received Royal Assent in the Saskatchewan legislature. There are no significant changes for the College’s operations except that the College’s corporate membership will now be drawn from current and past regents, local church representatives, students, parents, faculty and staff of the College. Also, the College’s annual general meeting (AGM) will be convened at the College instead of at the same time and venue as the national assembly of the ELCIC. The first AGM under this new format will be convened in October 2019 at Luther College’s University campus.

The Luther College Board of Regents for 2018-2019 comprised of the following individuals, who generously dedicated their time and effort to guiding the mission and values of Luther College:

  • Janet Bjorndahl (2015-2019) – IT Analyst, FCC
