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 2019

1. Mission and Vision Evaluation

Council will monitor the college’s progress regarding opportunities for improvement as noted by the HLC visit team in its report, and will support faculty, staff, departmental areas, and committees in preparing for the focus visit regarding student learning assessment.

3. Engagement
Council will focus on sustaining engagement with the campus community by expanding the coworker connect initiative and establishing best practices for communicating with represented groups.
