Committee membership is an important component in our "service to the college." Committee members are expected to attend regularly scheduled meetings, to actively participate, to contribute to and share fairly in the workload and responsibilities of the Committee, to consult and seek input as needed from the Division members that they represent so as to represent the needs and concerns of the Division as a whole, and to maintain communication with Committee Chairs and Senate Representatives.
ADVOCACY: Your role as a division representative is to represent the point (s) of view of your Division. Report back to your division meetings to inform your colleagues of changes and discussions that may affect them. Bring questions and concerns back to the committee so we can hear all sides of the debate.
In initial discussions or rankings, you should feel free to present and press division views. Keep in mind the overall good of the student, faculty community and/or the college at large. Use your best judgment to contribute broader ideas and viewpoints to encourage debate and consensus in order to make recommendations to Senate and/or the District Technology Committee.
The Academic Senate's Instructional Technology Committee is a standing group of the
District Technology Committee (est. 2002)
ITC will continue to be an Academic Senate Committee and function accordingly with respect to the determination of its membership and reporting relationships to the Academic Senate. The District Technology committee is an advisory to the College Planning Council, which in turn is the advisory group to the College President. Final authority rests with the President and Board of Trustees.
