Without communication we would not have understanding. Here at GCC were are constantly communicating. Instructors to students in classrooms, colleagues to colleagues in meetings, the college to the community: so many scenarios, you get the picture. However, with all of these communications we still have misunderstandings or ambiguous assumptions on how things work. Or sometimes all of our hard work and deliberate decision-making is not widely known by the campus – information sharing is another challenge we face. And thirdly, seeking information can be daunting when we aren’t sure what is available to us or maybe we are not sure where to look. This article shares certain scenarios that may clear up any mystery when it comes to communications in regards to governance at GCC.
The two methods that are encouraged are email and using the online reporting form.
Option 1) EMAIL the agenda from the meeting along with a brief summary to the governance office (email@example.com) – your report will be forwarded to the executive board that appointed you (either CSEA, Academic Senate, or Guild Executives)
Option 2) ONLINE REPORTING FORM – there is a link for staff and faculty to access, located on the governance webpage: www.glendale.edu/governance
If you are a CSEA representative on a governance committee, fill in the easy report form. The form is available on the governance webpage Committee Report for Classified Staff. Select the committee, and voila! The report will be sent automatically.
If you are a Faculty representative on a governance committee, fill in the online committee report form. The form is available on the governance webpage Committee Report for Faculty. Select the committee on which you serve on. The report will be sent automatically.
Communicate with the committee chair in the event a proxy form is not filled out. Be sure to provide meeting materials to your proxy, and don’t forget to follow up with your proxy after the meeting to get an update on the good work the committee accomplished.
From the GCC home page go to “About GCC”, “Faculty and Staff” – the links to the webpages of Governance, the Academic Senate, Guild, CSEA, and other links can be found here.
Psssst, for quicker access the Board of Trustees button is located on the yellow menu bar.
