Participatory Governance

Participatory Governance

Foothill-De Anza Community College District prides itself as a model of shared governance and participatory leadership. Administrators, faculty and staff share a responsibility to provide input to the vision and administration of the district, including its key goals and objectives, operational policies and procedures, and execution of its mission. Constituency groups work collectively to review and implement policy and to achieve the highest outcomes on behalf of our students and community.

District Participatory Governance Committees

Chancellor's Advisory Council (CAC) - Comprised of administrative, faculty, staff and student leaders, the CAC is the main governance group that advises the chancellor on institutional planning, budgeting, and policy and procedures. 

In the fall and winter quarters of the 2016-2017 academic year and again in the spring quarter of the 2018-2019 academic year, members of the district participatory governance council and committees evaluated the work of their respective council/committee.  Click below for summaries of the evaluation surveys.
