Relations with Local Senates Committee

The Relations with Local Senates (RwLS) Committee serves to augment the work of the Executive Committee. The committee is interested in cultivating and maintaining a climate where equity and mutual respect are both intrinsic and explicit by valuing individuals and groups from all backgrounds, demographics, and experiences. Its overall purpose is to provide an opportunity to share local and state challenges, exemplary practices, and other information with the Executive Committee. In order to accomplish its overall mission, the RwLS members are conversant with and promote pertinent statutes and strategies for effective and inclusive academic senates. The RwLS will assess the needs of local leaders in order to provide resources needed to participate effectively in governance at the local level.
