Board of Trustees

Saint Mary’s College of California's Board of Trustees is the College's governing body whose fiduciary duties and responsibilities are determined by the College's bylaws and other governing documents.

The board's responsibilities include advocating for the College locally, nationally, and internationally; exercising appropriate oversight of the academic quality and fiscal health of the College; approving the annual budget; evaluating and advising the President of the College; and providing financial support, as well as leadership in fundraising, to sustain the College's mission and progress.

The Board is a self-perpetuating body whose maximum number shall be 32, of which not less than 6 nor more than 10 shall be professed religious of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.
