The colleges of the Yosemite Community College District are governed by a seven-member board of trustees elected to represent the wide geographical and culturally diverse area encompassed by the district. A Faculty Consultant to the Board, elected by faculty, sits with the Board for advisory purposes. A student representative, elected annually by students enrolled in the district and alternating between Columbia College and Modesto Junior College, serves the Board in a non-voting capacity. The district's Board of Trustees define their Special Priorities annually. This, in working with the Chancellor on the district budget, serves as a blueprint for the next year's activities. The Trustees role begins with assessing state and local issues in order to identify key planning guidelines. Their role concludes with final approval of both the District budget and Board Special Priorities. The Board of Trustees also approves all college and district planning processes. The planning processes end with approval from the officials elected to serve and represent residents in the communities within the district's service area.
