To fully implement the AB 1725 participatory governance regulations in a spirit of collegiality, Santiago Canyon College has developed a structure of councils, committees, ad hoc groups, and task forces. The constituent groups will be the Faculty (Academic Senate), Administration, Classified (CSEA), and Students (ASB).
DESIGN OF THE STRUCTURE
The structure is designed to ensure the constituent groups the right to participate effectively in the Rancho Santiago Community College District and Santiago Canyon College governance, the opportunity to express their opinions at the college level, and assurance that these opinions are given every reasonable consideration.
DUTIES OF THE CONSTITUENT GROUPS
The councils and committees will gather information, deliberate, report, and formulate recommendations regarding policies and procedures, which will be forwarded to the Academic Senate, the President of Santiago Canyon College, and the Board of Trustees. None of the decisions of the groups shall be construed to impinge upon the statutory rights granted by Title V sections governing the participation rights of any group, including collective bargaining, faculty, staff, students, community members, or trustees.
