Participating Effectively in District and College Governance

Local Senates

Revised and Updated 2020

The following guidelines on local decision-making processes were originally developed jointly by the Community College League of California (CCLC) and the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) in 1992. They were endorsed by the boards of directors of the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) and Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges (CEOCCC) and by resolution of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges. The guidelines were augmented in 1998 by joint task forces of the CCCT, CEOCCC, and ASCCC and have now been updated and revised for currency in 2020.
