  • Aid in short-range planning and decision-making
  • Improve performance, services, and programs
  •  Contribute to long-range planning
  • Contribute information and recommendations to other college processes, as appropriate
  • Serve as the campus conduit for decision-making by forwarding information to appropriate committees 


Membership is comprised of at least 3 Vice Presidents or their designees, as appointed by the President, 10% faculty representation by Division, at least 3 classified staff members as appointed by Classified Senate/CSEA, and one student.
