Community Government

According to its mission statement, Marlboro College "promotes independence by requiring students to participate in the planning of their own programs of study and to act responsibly within a self-governing community."

The college's community assembly is modeled on the traditional New England Town Meeting. All students, faculty and staff members may participate, each with an equal vote. The monthly assembly governs community life and serves as a forum for college-wide issues. Community sentiment figures heavily into administrative decisions, and Town Meeting representatives serve on a number of faculty and administrative committees, and represent the students at trustee meetings. Town Meeting distributes thousands of dollars to committee projects and student initiatives

Elected Town Meeting officers include nine Selectpeople, who call meetings and function as community leaders.

The community abides by a Community Constitution and Bylaws, documents that can be found in the Marlboro College Handbook and specify much of Town Meeting's authority and structure.

Check out the "background info" tab for a description of the Town Meeting process at Marlboro College.
