Regents, Administration, & Faculty

Control and Resources

The administrative affairs of the College are vested in a Board of Regents, which is recognized by the New York State Department of Education as the governing body. Four members shall be elected by the general conventions of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. In addition, four members are elected by conventions of the Atlantic District of the Synod—the geographical jurisdiction in which the College is located—whose president serves as an ex officio member of the Board. Finally, no fewer than four and no more than eight laypersons are appointed as voting members by the Board of Regents itself.
