Governance

The State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia became a statutory body on July 1, 1986, and it has subsequently assumed direct governance of the majority of Georgia technical colleges and associated university technical divisions. The State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia was established with the responsibility for the governance and management of all the state supported technical and adult colleges. The Board executes its responsibilities in two primary ways:

  • By adopting policies to provide general guidelines for governing the system; and
  • By appointing a Commissioner, who is given the responsibility and authority for the administration of the system in accordance with the adopted policies, and who is the chief executive officer of the State Technical College System of Georgia.

Oconee Fall Line Technical College is authorized by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia to award associate degrees, diplomas, and technical certificates of credit.

A local board of directors operates in concert with the State Board to accomplish the mission of the college. The purpose of such boards shall be to facilitate the delivery of programs, services, and activities as directed by the State Board of TCSG.
