The success of any formalized institution is due in part to the adoption of well defined organizational concepts. At McPherson College, organizational structure is designed to enable the college to fulfill most efficiently its current purposes and to contribute to the operation of the total educational enterprise.
The Board of Trustees has the power to transact all business as may be necessary for the purposes of the corporation and to select the CEO of the College who, as the chief administrative officer, is responsible for the overall success of the college in meeting its goals and objectives.
The Associated Colleges of Central Kansas (ACCK) is a consortium of the following six institutions:
