Commissioners are responsible for advocating for the colleges and ensuring compliance with regulations in accordance with Wyoming Statutes. They are also responsible for prioritizing capital construction projects among the seven colleges, using a capital construction modeling program created for the WCCC, and forwarding their recommendations to the State Construction Department. The Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate appoints the seven commissioners. No less than three or more than four appointed commissioners shall be from counties in which a community college district is located. No more than 75% of the members shall be of the same political party. Commissioners serve four year terms with the option to continue service for one additional term.  The Commissioners are assisted in their duties by the Executive Director and a staff of twelve employees.
