2019-20 Committees

 revised 31-Mar 20



Curriculum Committee

Mission and Purpose

The Curriculum Committee is a campus level committee and subcommittee of the Fullerton College Faculty Senate, with representation from each division, and resource members from the college community.  The CC is charged with facilitating curriculum development and approving curriculum proposals at Fullerton College, as well as general education, graduation, and other curricular policies, procedures, and requirements.

The committee assists faculty with creating course and program proposals and revisions that reflect the excellence of instruction at Fullerton College, comply with Title 5 requirements, and have the best opportunity to be supported at all levels of the approval process through the Board of Trustees and the State Chancellor’s Office.

The committee reviews, approves and/or disapproves modifications of existing curricula and the addition of new courses and programs at FC.  In addition, the committee adds, deletes and modifies curricula and approves courses for general education lists for California State University, University of California, Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), and Fullerton College Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Sciences (AS) degrees.

The curriculum is the major statement any institution makes about itself, about what it can contribute to the intellectual development of students, about what it thinks is important in its teaching service to society. (The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 1979)

California’s community college reform bill (AB 1725) assigned to faculty the “primary responsibility for making recommendations in the areas of curriculum and academic standards.”  The Fullerton College Curriculum Committee has been responsible for this function since 1990.

Program Review Committee

Mission and Purpose

Formed by the Faculty Senate in fall 2010, the Program Review Committee promotes and supports the systematic self-assessment of instructional programs, student support services, and administrative/operational areas throughout the college.  To that end, the Program Review Committee designs self-study documents, reads and evaluates the self-studies and provides feedback to writers.  A key purpose for the committee is to identify common themes found across the various program reviews.  The college themes identified by the committee are presented to Faculty Senate for ratification, forwarded to the President’s Advisory Council (PAC) for endorsement and used to inform the campus process of developing college goals.  The Program Review Committee provides both the identified themes as well as a complete list of requested resources.  As part of a continuous quality improvement process, the committee engages in ongoing review and revision of templates and processes associated with Program Review.  Members shall serve staggered terms (when feasible) with one half the committee elected / appointed /selected new for each program review cycle.  The Program Review Committee reports to the Faculty Senate.

Institutional Research and Effectiveness Committee

Mission and purpose

This committee is related to the Accreditation Standard IV.A.5 as of September 2017:

IV.A.5. The role of leadership and the institution’s governance and decision-making structures and processes are regularly evaluated to assure their integrity and effectiveness. The institution widely communicates the results of these evaluations and uses them as the basis for improvement.

as well as to the ongoing implementation of AB1725 (participatory governance).

The purpose of this committee is to provide the Faculty Senate with a tool to research and evaluate the effectiveness of decision-making at Fullerton College and at the District. At the direction of the Faculty Senate this committee will undertake a review and analysis of some existing or proposed decision making process and prepare a report to be submitted to the Senate. Since Faculty can only make recommendations as part of the decision making process, by necessity most processes investigated by IREC will include Faculty, Administrators, and Classified personnel. The ultimate “deciders” are the Trustees and their representatives on campus, such as the College President.

The report created by this committee would include the following:

* A description of the current decision making process

* An analysis of the effectiveness of the current decision making process

* A recommendation to the Faculty Senate for changes to the current decision making process

Potential tasks for the committee:

* Faculty Allocation Process

* Enrollment Management Process

* Technology Allocation Process

* College and District Budget development and allocation process

* College grant and program allocation processes

* other processes and practices the Senate requests the IREC committee to review



Elected by the voting committee members for a 2-year term.

Joint Faculty Senate / President’s Advisory Council

Student Equity and Achievement Committee


The Student Equity and Achievement Committee (SEAC) was created in Fall 2019 by mutual agreement of the President and the Faculty Senate to provide leadership advocacy, and the institutional guidance and vision for coordinating campus-wide student success efforts affecting basic skills, transfer, Career Technical Education, completion, diversity, and equity at Fullerton College.  This committee will be responsible for the development of the SEA plan required by the State. Additionally, the committee provides recommendations on how to disseminate State Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) funds most effectively to improve and promote achievement and equity.

With the support and collaboration of the entire campus community, the committee will gather and share information and data, consult with constituencies, and serve as a repository of knowledge and as a catalyst for student success and achievement activities on campus.  Engaging in this process, SEAC will prioritize and offer solutions, recommend resources, and evaluate effectiveness using appropriate indicators of student success.

SEAC will be co-chaired by a faculty member and an administrator.  SEAC reports to the Faculty Senate and the President’s Advisory Council.  Recommendations for expenditures and allocations are approved by the Faculty Senate and the President’s Advisory Council.

Accreditation Steering Committee

This is a dual-reporting committee to the Faculty Senate and the President’s Advisory Council.


The Accreditation Steering Committee (ASC) serves as a standing committee that reports to Faculty Senate and PAC. It is responsible for all aspects of the accreditation process at Fullerton College. The primary purpose of the ASC is to guide the college’s accreditation activities, including the following:

  • Preparation of any required accreditation reports
  • Monitoring of accreditation policies and regulations, including standards issued by ACCJC
  • Education of the campus community on accreditation standards and the accreditation process
  • Regular review of Fullerton College’s compliance with accreditation standards, including systematic documentation and organization of evidence related to the standards.
  • Recommendations to the Faculty Senate and PAC regarding accreditation-related issues.

The ASC is also responsible for ensuring that the self-evaluation process, preparation of reports, and other activities related to accreditation draw on wide campus engagement conducted in a transparent manner.

President’s Advisory Council / Professional Learning Committee

Mission and Purpose

 The Professional Learning Committee is devoted to supporting the professional learning needed for Fullerton College educators—Faculty (full-time and adjunct), Classified Professionals and Managers—to improve student success.  Professional Learning support should contribute to this improvement not only in individual classrooms and student support areas, but across the campus as a whole.  Professional Learning believes this will best be achieved by encouraging shared learning and a culture of collaboration in order to become a truly learning-focused institution.  In order to further these goals, the Professional Learning Committee determines staff development policies and priorities based on communication with constituent groups;  provides campus-wide staff development activities and workshops to meet identified needs;  disseminates Professional Learning funds and facilitates shared learning following committee-funded activities;  and provides oversight and facilitates the use of the Teaching Effectiveness Center.



Designated as the Staff Development Coordinator and appointed by the Faculty Senate, 9.0 units of reassigned time.
