Committees are working groups comprised of all CCCC employees to conduct the business of the college thereby carrying out the strategic plan goals and objectives. The committee process assists in keeping everyone informed and engaged. The ultimate goal is student success and fulfillment of the CCCC mission. The committee process provides documentation (evidence) toward the development of the accreditation self study.
The Academic Dean (AD) and Dean of Administration (DA) oversees the work of the committees to assure follow through and accomplishment. Each committee has been named and a purpose described. A leader (chair) is designated for each committee by consensus of the members. Brief meeting notes are recorded and submitted to the President's office via the AD & DA for documentation of the work and as part of the accreditation evidence process. As appropriate, committee notes are shared with all employees and committee leaders/chairs report out at monthly staff meetings.
Management Committee –Integrates the work of all committees thereby linking assessment process and program reviews to planning and budgeting; monitors progress of strategic plan priorities via committee structure; plans for resource development; oversees all reporting requirements including enrollment management and accreditation status toward ongoing institutional improvement; and leads internal communications toward faculty/staff cooperation and understanding.
