The College Council serves as a governance group that makes recommendations to the superintendent/president. College Council is the primary advisory for college-wide matters.
College Council has four primary functions:
- Provide input on district policy and procedure development.
- Ensure that policies, procedures, plans, and other matters are directed to the appropriate governance, operational, or working conditions groups.
- Ensure that governance process and priorities, accreditation processes, integrated plans, and activities promote institutional effectiveness, through collaboration, assessment, communication, coordination, and refinement.
- Provide input on the development of Board of Trustees meeting dockets.
