The NEG Committee of the Faculty Senate is calling for nominations for a representative (delegate) to the SUNY Faculty Council on Community Colleges (FCCC).
The FCCC is the official agency through which the SUNY community college faculty engages in the governance of the University. The FCCC focuses on matters relating to community college faculty and system-wide educational policies and other professional matters of SUNY, and in those areas the FCCC:
-- studies, advises, and makes recommendations regarding academic concerns, issues, policies and programs;
provides opportunity and structure for the faculties of the community colleges to formulate positions on policy matters of common interest to the community colleges for transmittal to community college presidents, trustees and sponsors;
-- provides an opportunity for the faculties of the community colleges to act in an advisory, consultative and planning capacity to the Chancellor of the University;
-- provides a forum for the consideration of matters of common interest to the faculties of the community colleges;
provides a means for the interchange of ideas among the faculties of the community colleges and between the faculties and the administration of the University; and
-- provides an additional channel of communication between the university administration and local governing boards of the community colleges.
The representative will serve a three year term. The representative is responsible for attending two FCCC conferences each year and they are expected to actively serve on one of the subcommittees.
Please submit your nominations by e-mail to Andrew Morris, Chair of the NEG Committee by Monday, April 5, 2010. Please verify the willingness of the nominee to serve prior to submitting his/her name. Self-nominations are permitted.
