Governing board

The Les Roches Governing Board is the legally constituted body ultimately responsible for Les Roches’ quality, integrity and strategic direction. The Board’s composition assures a fair representation of Les Roches’ stakeholders and industry partners and reflects the areas of competence needed to fulfill Les Roches’ Vision and Mission.

The Board exercises its authority and independence to support informed institutional strategic direction and goals. The Board approves and reviews institutional policies; monitors the institution’s fiscal condition; and approves major new initiatives developed in consultation with the appropriate internal or external constituencies.

In exercising its fiduciary responsibility, the Board assures that the institution periodically reviews its success in fulfilling its Mission and achieving its Purposes through a series of self-assessment procedures such as external audits, regulatory compliance, internal controls, and contingency management.

Les Roches’ Managing Director, Dr Christine Demen Meier, receives from the Governing Board the requisite authority and autonomy to lead the institution’s strategic initiatives and to manage Les Roches’ academic programs and services on its behalf.
