Ad Hoc Town Hall Committee

The town hall committee was created and approved by the Academic Senate to organize a series of town hall meetings to bridge communication and increase feedback between the faculty, community and Board of Trustees.

Rationale (from ACCJC Standards http://www.accjc.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Accreditation-Standards_Edited-Nov-2012.pdf)

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) recommends:

A college-wide dialogue that integrates the elements of the Standards provides the complete view of the institution that is needed to verify integrity and to promote quality and improvement.

From Standard IV Shared Governance:

  • The institution recognizes that ethical and effective leadership throughout the organization enables the institution to identify institutional values, set and achieve goals, learn, and improve.
  • Through established governance structures, processes and practices, the governing board, administrators, faculty, staff, and students work together for the good of the institution. These processes facilitate discussion of ideas and effective communication among the institution's constituencies.
