About the Task Force


Guiding Principle
Create an administrative structure that promotes the values, mission and strategic focus of the college in the 21st Century.
A document that presents three options for the administrative structure of Bakersfield College with pros and cons for each option along with the budgetary impact. The research that informs these options will include historical administrative structures at BC, structures from other campuses, and internal conversations with the campus community. The options will reflect the institutional priorities as defined in the Strategic Focus, Core Values, Program Review Summary, and Decision Making Document.
Administrative Structure of College. This is not a reorganization that is initiated to downsize the college for the reduction of force.
