An introduction to our BOT

The Elim Christian College Board of Trustees (BOT) consists of parent elected trustees, a staff-elected trustee and a student-elected trustee.  In addition to this, there are Proprietor’s Trustees who also serve on the Board and have all the rights and obligations of other Board members.  The Proprietors Trustees have the responsibility of ensuring the Special Character is upheld.
