How to Route Issues
Committees are comprised of people who have a specific interest and/or level of expertise in certain areas. Accordingly, issues should be raised by taking the concerns directly to the appropriate committee for review and recommendations. The Executive Governance Council (EGC) only accepts recommendations that have been passed through the committee structure. If there is a question about what committee would address a particular issue, please contact an EGC member and they can help direct you to the appropriate committee. A guiding principle is that issues should be resolved at the most direct level possible, with broader level issues being recommended to the EGC. Recommendations should be brought before EGC if:
- The matter is in opposition to current policy;
- The matter will change current policy or procedure, temporarily or permanently; or
- The matter will establish a new policy.
All committee recommendations shall be routed using the Continuing Education Governance Council Recommendation Form (below).
Any issue needing clarification or due process that relates to any of the following areas must be routed to the Academic Senate:
- Course/Program articulation and certificate requirements
- Grading Policies
- Educational Program Development
- Standards or Policies regarding student preparation and success
- District and Continuing Education Governance Structures involving faculty
- Faculty involvement in Accreditation
- Faculty Professional Development
- Process for Program Review
