About the Committee

Charge

College Council is a collegial, consultative, and oversight body designed to serve the good of the College. The group facilitates timely, factual, and clear communication between constituents and the President. It provides recommendations to the President on college-wide matters. The Council oversees implementation of the Strategic Directions Plan and ensures institutional quality using ongoing and systematic planning and evaluation to refine key policies and processes, and to improve student learning.

The College Council Charge document was reviewed and approved in Fall 2017.

Role, Purpose, & Scope

To address college-wide issues through a collaborative, integrative approach, promoting greater communication that is accessible to the college campus at large, and to facilitate timely and effective decision-making efforts.

This group serves as one of the President’s consultative councils.

 

Membership

Members are determined by either the position they hold or through a selection process established by the constituency group they represent. Term lengths will vary and in cases where a constituency group is comprised of multiple members, the selection process will allow for staggered terms. This will allow for consistent representation and mentoring of new members.
