Western Community College has a fully functional Board of Governors and Academic Council.

The purpose of the Board is to provide experience based administrative, financial, and policy guidance with respect to the implementation, management, and evolution of the College’s proposed degree-based programs and to ensure that the College achieves value-adding results for its staff, students and communities it serves.

The mandate of the Academic Council is to provide a forum for senior administrators and faculty, students, and staff to develop and review of academic program and policies. In addition to program development and policy review, the Council recommends the future direction of College programming, and identifies significant trends in education and industry that may impact program offerings.

The Academic Council ensures that the College’s programs meet the academic requirements, academic policies, standards of the College, industry requirements, and provincial and external regulatory requirements.
