Academic BuildingThe Aquinas College Board of Trustees is a dynamic group of active and dedicated community leaders whose expertise ranges from education and religion to finance and law to business and communication. Through its careful stewardship of College policy, property, strategic planning and fiscal affairs, the Board of Trustees is committed to advancing the mission and values of our Catholic and Dominican educational community.
