This process does not include college search committees, task forces, faculty association, or student association committees and informal, short-term planning groups.

General Guidelines:  


  • Committees may be established on campus by the college president.
  • Committees may be college-wide, within a single unit, or across two or more units.
  • Committee members may be faculty, administrators, classified staff, and students.
  • Committees are not to replace task forces.

Steps to Establish a Committee:

1.   The college president or designee appoints the chair of the committee.  The chair may be an administrator, classified staff person, or faculty member.  Co-chairs may be appointed.

2.   The committee chair or co-chairs will have the discretion to solicit and appoint up to 50% of the members to the committee.  If no additional volunteers come forward (see Step 3f.), the committee will stand as is.

3.   The committee chair or co-chairs will be responsible for announcing in the College Bulletin the following:

a.         Title of Committee
b.         Chair/Co-Chairs of Committee
c.         Purpose of Committee
d.         Existing Members of Committee (if any)
e.         Designate whether the committee is permanent (ongoing) or ad hoc 
f.         Invite interested staff to become members of the committee
