History of Board of Trustees  

In June 2002, Colorado Governor Bill Owens signed legislation that approved the creation of a stand-alone Board of Trustees for Fort Lewis College. The first Board of Trustees began governing the College on September 1, 2002. The Board increased from seven to nine voting members in March 2020.

Prior to being governed by the Trustees, the State Board of Agriculture governed Fort Lewis since it first became an agricultural high school in 1911.
