2019 Board of Trustees for Fort Lewis College

About the 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. This nine-member Board of Trustees began governing the College on September 1, 2002.

The Trustees make policy for Fort Lewis College and oversee its operation. The board consists of seven members who serve four-year terms. Each of these individuals is appointed by the Governor and requires Senate confirmation. No more than four shall be from any one political party, and two shall be from Southwest Colorado, which is defined in the bill as Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan counties.

The Trustees will also include non-voting representatives elected by the student body and the faculty at large.

The current trustees appointed by the Governor include Dianne Van Voorhees, Janet Lopez, Ernest House, Jr., Richard Kaufman, Alan G. Hill, Ellen Roberts, and Steven Short. The board also includes a faculty representative and a student representative.

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.
