The Lone Star College System Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring that the Lone Star College System is an integral part of their communities and serve their ever-changing needs. To ensure effectiveness, the Board should function as a cohesive group to articulate and represent a balanced System and public interest, establish a climate for learning and monitor the effectiveness of the System. The Board does not do the work of the System; rather it establishes vision for the work through the policies it sets.
All Board Members represent LSCS as residents within the LSCS District and serve without remuneration or emolument of office except where benefits are provided by state law.
Board Members are elected as representatives of nine single-member districts by citizens in the Lone Star College in-district service area in November of even-numbered years and serve terms of six years each.
The Board determines when and where it holds regular and special Board Meetings. Board Meetings are held in the Board Room of the Training and Development Center at 5000 Research Forest Drive, The Woodlands, Texas, 77381 unless otherwise noticed. Board Meetings are usually held on every month’s first Thursday at 5:00 p.m., except in January when no regular Board Meeting is scheduled. The Board’s practice is to open the meeting and immediately proceed to go into closed session. In no event, however, may the Board Chair reconvene the open session before 6:00 p.m. The Board may decide to meet at a different time, date, or place as long as proper notice is given under the Texas Open Meetings Act.
The Board Chair calls special Board Meetings at his or her discretion or upon the request of three or more Trustees.
