Alexander College is headed by a board of distinguished educators from educational institutions in BC. The Board of Governors considers and approves the overall operation of the College, supervises all academic programs, and ensures that periodic reviews and formal assessments are conducted by receiving information from the President and other sources, and by giving direction to the President.
