Application for Statewide Service

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recognizes the benefits to students, faculty, and the community college system that are gained by a variety of personal experiences, values, and views that derive from individuals from diverse backgrounds. This diversity includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, gender/sex, sexual orientation, disability status, religious and political affiliations, age, cultural background, socioeconomic status, academic and vocational disciplines, and the types of colleges that exist throughout the system. The Executive Committee respects and is committed to promoting equal opportunity and inclusion of diverse voices and opinions. The Executive Committee encourages diverse faculty to participate in Academic Senate activities and supports local senates in recruiting and encouraging diverse faculty to serve on Senate standing committees. Please note that the Academic Senate receives more applications than slots available. Therefore, submission of this application is not a guarantee of appointment.

What Senate Committee(s), task forces, ad hoc groups are you interested in serving?

While selecting committees is useful, we are better able to match you with your areas of interest if you provide us with those topics you have expertise or those areas where you would like to learn more about. Please share with us all areas you are interested in serving at the State level.

The following information will help the Academic Senate fulfill its commitment to inclusivity as well as its commitment to part-time and non-credit faculty.

I give my permission for the information on this application to be made available to the Chancellor’s Office and other state, federal, or independent agencies that may request it for appointment purposes. I understand, as a condition of appointment, that a change in my faculty status (i.e., acceptance of an administrative position) or my inability to attend meetings will necessitate a resignation, and I will notify the Academic Senate President immediately, so that a replacement may be selected. I further agree to keep the Academic Senate President informed by written reports of the activities of the committee or other group to which I may be appointed. Thank you for your willingness to serve. The Academic Senate pool of applicants may exceed requests for appointments, but every effort is made to involve as many faculty as possible. Applications are kept on file for at least three years, but please feel free to update your application at any time by resubmitting this form.
