Associations, Committees and Governance

All committees have transitioned from BlackBoard to SharePoint.  The transfer is in process.  The new committee site is Fresno City College: MyOrgs.

Our campus is managed through participatory governance. We work, have fun, and engage with colleagues, students, and the community.

Associations are created by faculty and staff

Committees and Councils are involved in the administration and collegiality of the campus

Governance is representation of faculty, classified professionals, administration and students

Governance Bodies

Governance bodies are those whose authority is derived from law and regulation, either as written expressly in the law or regulation or as delegated by another group that possesses said authority. Governance groups assess, discuss and make recommendations to the President on topics appropriate to that group as defined in regulations, such as California Code of Regulations Title 5 [section] 53200. Governance groups often rely on subcommittees and ad hocs to complete their work.

The members of governance bodies represent specific constituencies. Each member is responsible to bring information and perspectives from the constituent group into the governance group dialogue as well as to bring information and perspectives from the governance group back to the constituent group.

College Committees

College Committees assist the President in fulfilling the chancellor's and Board's plans, procedures, and policies as well as state mandates. The authority for College Committees is derived from the college and district as the President, Chancellor, and/or Board of Trustees assign specific responsibilities to committees.

College Committees are formed to ensure broad participation in planning and completing tasks that have college-wide impact, such as program review, accreditation, safety, facilities, and assessment.

Members are assigned or appointed to serve as College Committee members as representatives of specific constituencies as well as by virtue of their unique expertise or position.
