There are three standing committees: Executive Committee (EC), Curriculum Committee (CC) and Appointments, Promotion and Tenure Committee (APT). Each committee has a membership of nine faculty members. The term of service is generally three academic years, and terms are staggered so that there are three new faculty appointed to each committee, effective with the commencement of each academic year. Thus, there are approximately 27 faculty members serving on the standing committees.
College service is required of all Ranked full-time Faculty. Committee service and other service to the College are considered in all tenure and promotion actions. Committees should have a goal of representative membership from each area of the College.
The Faculty Senate
is comprised of all Ranked and Unranked Faculty. Lecturers and Emeritus faculty may attend meetings and contribute their views but may not vote. The Faculty Senate meets at least once a semester at the behest of the Senate President. Additional meetings may be called by majority vote of the Senate Executive Committee, or by petition of 20% of the Faculty Senate membership, or by the Provost.
The Executive Committee (EC)
The Executive Committee is composed of the faculty senate President, Vice President, and nine members of the faculty senate, each serving a three year appointment. The EC meets on a monthly basis, on alternating campuses, and/or at the initiative of the Senate President.
The Appointments Promotions and Tenure Committee (APT)
is composed of nine faculty senate members. All members must have been at the College for a minimum of seven calendar years, and serve three year terms. APT meets on a biweekly basis, on the Oakland campus.
The Curriculum Committee (CC)
membership is composed of active faculty representing the diverse cultures of the college. Members typically serve a three year term. CC meets on a monthly basis, on alternating campuses.
