Service at the State Level
We Need Your Help!
The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) is requesting your participation for statewide service! Every year we are asked to appoint nearly 1,000 faculty volunteers to various committees, workgroups, and task forces, both within our system and inter-segmentally to represent the voice and expertise of faculty in academic and professional matters. Unless otherwise noted, all appointments are for a one-year term beginning in the summer. Please briefly fill out the online form. The request for assignments has already begun!
The Board of Governor’s Procedures and Standing Orders, section 332, explicitly recognizes the role of the ASCCC as the official voice of faculty in academic and professional matters and directs the community college system to rely upon the ASCCC for appointment of all faculty. This is consistent with section 53206 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations.
Why Get Involved
Representation of the varied perspectives, collective wisdom, and expertise of 62,000 faculty members, demands a rich and diverse pool to populate the variety of appointments necessary to best serve our students.
We are looking for all faculty and need a diversity of voices including:
- discipline preparation
- college functional expertise
- racial and ethnically diverse viewpoints
- personal life experiences, such as veteran status
- perspectives from urban, rural, small, and large colleges.
