Membership

Representatives from the teaching faculty are elected college-wide by discipline groups as aggregated below. Counselors, LRC Representatives, and Academic Deans are elected college-wide by their peers. The Classified Staff Representative is elected by the Classified Association. Up to three teaching faculty members may be appointed for a one-year term by the PAPC to ensure equitable representation from the four campuses.

Each voting member elected by his/her constituency group shall serve a two-year term, with a 50% overlap from year to year. If a member should step down from the committee prior to the end of his/her term, a replacement shall be appointed by the Committee Chair to serve out the remainder of the term. After the term ends, the replacement will be eligible for election to serve a subsequent two-year term.

Members may be re-elected or re-appointed after one year off the committee.

Elections will be conducted to fill committee vacancies and results reported to the Chair prior to the April meeting each year.
