Welcome From The President

Welcome to the SCE Academic Senate’s website!

The Academic Senate is comprised of all of SCE's 21 full time faculty (instructors and counselors) as well as six adjunct faculty representatives.

We meet the first Tuesday afternoon of every month during the academic year, and our primary responsibility as an academic senate is making recommendations with respect to academic and professional matters. Some of the academic and professional matters include curriculum, degree and certificate requirements, grading policies, accreditation, program review, and student preparation and success.

While our senate participates in the governance of our own district, we also stay abreast of statewide community college issues and actively participate in statewide committees when possible.

We believe in positive change through educational growth; therefore, it is our honor to serve our community one student at a time. Please feel free to contact me at any time with comments or questions. Additionally, you are always welcome to attend any senate meetings. We value your input.
