Board of Governors - Member - Durham College
Your voice is wanted at Durham College
The Durham College (DC) Board of Governors is seeking members of the public who are ready to help shape the future of the college. Two vacancies are available to serve on the Board beginning in September 2021 for a three-year term.
This is an opportunity to make a direct, positive impact on the ways in which DC changes lives and transforms communities.
We remain in unprecedented times as the challenge of a new virus causing a global pandemic (COVID-19) and the long-standing struggle to dismantle systemic racism converge and continue to impact us in ways we could have never imagined. The ways in which DC navigates these issues and takes action will reverberate for years to come.
If ever there was a time for innovation to inform governance, it is most certainly now.
We are looking for candidates who are passionate about post-secondary excellence and who will draw on their lived and professional experience to expand the unique voices on our Board. We want the diverse populations DC serves to see themselves reflected in our Board composition and ensuring demographic, experiential and cognitive diversity among our members is vital to effective, innovative governance.
If you are a dynamic, creative individual with the experience, expertise and commitment to meet our criteria, we encourage you to apply for these positions. Prior experience serving in a governance role, while an asset, is not required. All applications will be considered based on merit; however, preference will be given to candidates with a background in social or community services, healthcare or hospitality in order to fill existing experience gaps on the Board.
Applications must be submitted by email and received by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2020. Candidates should be available to attend an interview the evening of Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
