  • to establish the salaries and tenure of the president, faculty, and other employees;
  • to acquire and dispose of property;
  • to arrange for cooperative use of facilities with the Board of Education;
  • to apply for and receive gifts and grants;
  • to establish entrance requirements and approve offerings consisting of two-year transfer programs, career/technical programs, and continuing education programs;
  • to set student tuition and fees;
  • to sue and be sued;
  • to solicit bids and make contracts; and
