Where can I find out what happened at a governance committee?

Go to the “Governance Update” link:
The Governance Update is a report that includes the actions taken by various governance committees.

Such actions include motions made and reports of tasks the committee has or will complete.  These actions have been compiled into a report and approved by the Campus Executive Committee. It is required by Administrative Regulation 2511, the Governance Document.

If you have any questions regarding items listed, contact the chair of the appropriate committee. Items reported may have changed or been resolved during a more recent meeting than the date noted.

To view committee minutes in their entirety please visit the "Committee MINUTES" link. Minutes posted online have been reviewed by their respective standing committee.

Now, for the part on guacamole…this process is not so regimented. You’ve decided to make guacamole. The next step is to gather fresh ingredients and mash them all together for a tasty treat. Done. I’d like to share a favorite, quick recipe for fresh Guacamole. Enjoy!


  • 1-2 avocados, scoop into your serving bowl; save the seed
  • 1 roam tomato, diced
  • 1 serrano chili, seeded and minced, use only the amount you desire for a bit of fire or a lot
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Garlic clove, minced
  • Squeeze lime juice – not too much, just a hint of taste
  • Optional additions: cilantro leaves, Worcestershire sauce, teaspoon of mayonnaise (yes, it truly enhances the guac)


Mash the avocado with a fork. Fold in the tomato, garlic, serrano chile, salt, pepper, in a bowl and mix. Squeeze lime juice for a hint of taste. Serve immediately with your favorite corn chips.

To store, place avocado pit in the bowl with the guacamole, to keep it from discoloring and then cover with plastic wrap, press the wrap down to the surface of the guacamole and store in the refrigerator.
