College Council

The College Council is an advisory body to the College President that provides multiple viewpoints on college-wide initiatives, including strategic planning, accreditation, and student success. As the College's central shared governance committee, Council members facilitate communication on institutional matters across its represented employee groups.


College Council Goals for FY 2018

1. Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Visit
As Steering Committee for the College's Assurance Argument, College Council will complete and submit the argument to HLC, and share the argument's content with our campus community (including students, faculty, and staff) in preparation for the site team's visit on March 5-6, 2018. 

2. Communication and Engagement
The Council will focus on improving engagement with the campus community via forums and outreach efforts, and attempt to increase committee participation rates in assessment through targeted communications about assessment's purpose and benefits.  

3. Strategic Planning and Student Success
The Council will actively engage in the evaluation of information and data regarding planning and student success, converse with the campus community about these topics, and support collaboration across the college's divisional and departmental areas.
