The Committees

Executive Committee

  • When appropriate, the Executive Committee will establish sub-committees of its own members or task forces which may consist of any Assembly members, to resolve important issues or address policy matters not being addressed by other committees.
  • The Executive Committee will consult with the other standing committees when such matters may overlap with their concerns.
  • The Executive Committee will seek input from all Assembly members, as well as the president, on a regular basis, as to what issues are most important, and will seek the advice of the president and any other interested parties when a task force or sub-committee is to be formed.

Academic Affairs Committee

In addition, the committee may recommend changes in college-wide academic policy and standards.

In performing these functions, the Finance Committee shall have timely access to all necessary information through its chairperson or his/her designee.
