Duties of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors for the Charter Oak State College Foundation is composed of up to twenty members representing a diverse mix of working and retired professionals. Also serving on the Board as non-voting members is a Charter Oak student elected by the College's student body, a Charter Oak Alumni appointed by the Alumni Association, a faculty member elected by Charter Oak faculty and the President of the College. The full Board meets four times per year.

The Board of Directors controls and manages the property, affairs and business of the Foundation and determines the manner in which funds, both principal and income, are expended based on polices established by the Board and in keeping with the laws and legislative mandates of the State of Connecticut.


"Supporting the Charter Oak State College Foundation is so important in today's economy. It is gives an individual, such as myself, the opportunity to assist someone who cannot afford a college education on their own. As Dean of Faculty and an online instructor, here at Charter Oak, I can see firsthand the role the Foundation has in encouraging students to achieve their career goals." - Dr. Patrice Farquharson, Dean of Charter Oak State College Faculty
