About the Senate

The purpose of the Academic Senate of Shasta College is to consult with and make recommendations to the administration and the governing board with respect to academic and professional matters. Our primary function is to provide a formal means whereby college faculty can make recommendations to the administration and governing board or their representatives and meet and confer with the administration and governing board or their representatives regarding these recommendations. These areas would include any district policy or procedure relating to academic and professional matters, such as curriculum, student relations, selection of administrators, professional relations, and any other matter not specifically within the scope of the employee collective bargaining agreements under California law or any area specifically excluded by California law.
