Reimagining Governance 2018-2021

College governance provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to express their opinions and provide feedback to the college president on college planning, allocation of resources, and the evaluation of institutional effectiveness.

A New Governance Model

Our governance structure at Foothill was reimagined during a Governance Summit in September 2017.

Starting in 2018-2019, our college governance model followed the Educational Master Plan goals and included four (4) independent governance committees — Community & Communication; Equity & Education; Revenue & Resources, and the overall planning College Advisory Council — with a focus on Students.

Constituency senates, as well as subcommittees of the Academic Senate, such as the Curriculum Committee, and other operational committees, such as financial aid scholarship readers, continued to operate.
