About the Committee


Administrative Council is a consultative body comprised of educational and classified administrators and managers. Administrative Council is a forum for communication on issues and trends affecting Bakersfield College, and communicates directly with the president of Bakersfield College.

Members of the Administrative Council serve at the discretion of the President, and provide the President a forum for vetting decisions prior to implementation. They strive to provide all possible viewpoints surrounding college-wide issues so the President can make decisions based on the widest possible perspectives.
