Academic Senate

The Academic Senate Governing Council is the voice of the faculty on the "10+1" matters, such as curriculum and instruction. We work collaboratively with college administration, staff, and students to promote academic excellence. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. 

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month from 1:00-2:50pm.
