Faculty Appointments to Committees

At COC, there are Academic Senate Standing Committees, College-Wide Committees, and Collegial Consultation Committees. The Academic Senate President, in consultation with the Academic Senate and chief executive officer (or designee) appoints faculty members to serve on committees as per the 10+1 responsibilities of the Academic Senate. The Academic Senate's Bylaws require the Academic Senate to approve the faculty appointments annually to Committees.

Collegial Consultation Committees

Collegial Consultation Committees are a reflection of the spirit and requirement outlined in Assembly Bill 1725 (1988): " the right to participate effectively in district and college governance, and the opportunity to express their opinions at the campus level and to ensure that these opinions are given every reasonable consideration, and the right of academic senates to assume primary responsibility for making recommendations in the areas of curriculum and academic standards."

These committees draw their membership from all employee groups, and include student representation. They are charged with examining issues relevant to their particular area of focus, fostering dialog on possible solutions, and ultimately making recommendations for moving forward.
