The Faculty/Staff Council
This committee was created at the request of the Board of Trustees to ensure the collective faculty and staff voice is heard. All staff and standing faculty are members of the committee, with the exception of the College President and members of the President’s Council. Meetings are held at least once per month. There is a rotating schedule of meeting moderators and minute-takers. Minutes of these meetings are shared with the President’s Council and the Board of Trustees.
