The Echo Times is the college's monthly student-run newspaper.
The College of Marin is governed as part of the Marin Community College District (MCCD), the community college district serving Marin County, California. MCCD is one of six California community college districts that is considered "basic aid", or "self-supporting", and therefore receives most of its operating revenue from local property taxes rather than State apportionment (since local property tax revenues exceed apportionment figures).
The MCCD is governed by seven members of a Board of Trustees elected at-large to four-year terms. Elections are held every two years, three members chosen the year after a presidential election and four chosen the year before. The students also elect one non-voting student trustee, who serves a one-year term and can participate in discussions and make and second motions so long as they are not related to real estate negotiations, personnel or collective bargaining. The current Board members are:
