Academic Senate

The Academic Senate is the faculty source for college, district, and shared governance information.

The Academic Senate meets at noon on the first four Tuesdays of each month in Rodda North 258.

The faculty is organized through the Academic Senate. Senators are elected by each division on campus to serve a term of two years. The officers are elected campus-wide for a term of two years. The responsibility of the senators is to be an information conduit between their divisions and the Senate and to act on behalf of the division faculty they represent.

In addition, AB1725 charges the Academic Senate with the responsibility for policy development and administrative affairs that pertain to academic and professional matters. The president of the Senate represents the views of faculty on the College Executive Council.
