A. THE FACULTY ROLE
The Roles of Campus
Constituencies in Shared Governance
One of the basic principles of academic institutional governance in higher education is that authority derives not only from the powers vested in governing boards and their staffs by law but also from the knowledge and experience possessed by the faculty.
Faculty at Los Angeles City College are represented by two faculty organizations: the college Academic Senate and the exclusive bargaining agent, the LACC Chapter of the Los Angeles Faculty Guild, Local 1521. Only designated representatives of these two organizations can articulate official faculty perspectives and recommendations to the SGC.
B. THE CLASSIFIED STAFF ROLE
The Classified Staff at Los Angeles City College are represented by the AFT Staff Guild, Local 99, Local 347 or S.I.E.U. Only designated representatives of these organizations can articulate official classified staff perspectives and recommendations to the SGC. The classified Staff will take an active role in shared governance by participating in the development of college policy and procedures that have or will have a significant effect upon its members. The staff’s recommendations will be given every reasonable consideration by the Shared Governance Council .
C. THE STUDENT ROLE
Students will participate in campus-shared governance by having representatives take part in all shared governance forums and committees. Students provide their advice and recommendations on issues which directly or indirectly affect them.
D. THE ADMINISTRATION’S ROLE
The administration’s primary responsibilities are to assist in the development of operational policies and to administer college operations so that faculty and staff can fulfill their basic functions of instructing students and promoting learning. To accomplish this responsibility, the administration’s role is to support an environment where fair, rational, consistent, and shared decision-making is possible. The administration also has the role of making recommendations to the SGC.
