The Academic Senate at Evergreen Valley College represents the faculty on academic and professional matters. It plays a key role in the college’s quadripartite governance structure. The Academic Senate is represented at all Board of Trustees meetings, and its members serve on numerous campus committees, which it either initiates or to which it provides faculty representation.
As the faculty’s official representative, and in accordance with Assembly Bill 1725, the Academic Senate is involved in all academic matters affecting instruction. In this regard, the Senate is an important part of the governance structure of the college and an equally important source of information to the campus and outside community.
By representing the widest possible cross section of the faculty, the Academic Senate is an important source for information and opinion gathering. The Academic Senate wants to be informed of all academic problems, concerns, projects, proposals, and activities throughout the campus. Academic Senate meetings are scheduled twice a month (normally, the first and third Tuesdays of the month, 3-5 p.m.).
Academic Senate office is located in A3-205; hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Telephone (408) 274-7900, ext. 6533.
