Regents are elected or ratified at the Luther College Corporation Meeting, which is held during the biennial national convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The Luther College regents provide nominations to the delegates at the Corporation Meeting. Board members are elected for four-year terms.
Regular board meetings are held approximately six times during the academic year. In addition, there are several standing board committees that meet more frequently. These include: Academic & Administrative; Audit; Building & Facilities Renewal; Development; Executive; Finance; and Governance Committees.
The primary responsibilities of the board of regents are:
- To supervise the financial resources and assets of the College
- To ensure that the College remains faithful to its stated mission and values
- To develop long-range plans for the advancement of the institution and monitor the implementation of those plans
- To receive reports from the president, to review the performance of the president, and periodically, to select the president
Persons wishing to communicate with the Board are advised, in the first instance, to contact the President of Luther College, who is the normal ongoing contact between the College and the Board.
