Board of Governors


The Nebraska Legislature, pursuant to the laws of the State of Nebraska, authorizes the establishment of a statewide independent system of locally governed community colleges.

The Legislature has declared a community college to be truly responsible to the people it serves. Primary control of such colleges must be placed in the citizens within its geographical area. The intent and purpose of this Act is to create locally-governed and locally-supported community college areas with the major educational emphasis on occupational education.

Each community college area is intended to be an independent, local, unique, and vital segment of higher education separate from both elementary and secondary school systems and from other institutions of higher education, and not to be converted into four-year baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. The Western Community College Area (WCCA) has been created for such intents and purposes.

Notice of Meeting - April 17, 2019

The Western Community College Area Board of Governors will hold a Regular meeting on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, at 1:00 p.m., in Rooms 115 and 116, Western Nebraska Community College, Sidney Campus, located at 371 College Drive, Sidney, NE. At 11:30 a.m., the Board of Governors will participate in a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center, Western Nebraska Community College, Sidney Campus, located at 371 College Drive, Sidney, NE. At 12:00 noon, the Board will meet informally for lunch in the Innovation and Entrepreneur Center. A current agenda is available for public inspection in the College President’s office and the Board Secretary’s office, Western Nebraska Community College, Scottsbluff Campus.
