Board Policy Manual

View the Lake Land College Board of Trustees Policy Manual.

The Board of Trustees Policy Manual is the official document of the Lake Land College Board of Trustees and supersedes all other documents and manuals written or approved by the Board. It sets forth authority by which the Board acts, as well as the administrative and procedural methods by which the Board officially functions.

Policies established herein reflect either legal authorizations, obligations of the Board of Trustees, or general policies which have been approved by the Board in an effort to facilitate the efficient operation of the College pursuant to the Illinois Public Community College Act and Illinois Compiled Statutes Chapter 110, Act 805, with related acts as amended. The manual provides a common guide for employees of the College, students and the general public, and ultimately, of course, the policies set forth herein are designed to ensure the quality of the educational services for the residents of the College service area.

It is also understood that the regulations contained in this manual do not supersede actions of the Board as recorded in the official minutes of the Board meetings.
