The faculty, staff, and students of Southern Union State Community College participate in the governance of the College through standing committees on which they are appointed to serve. All college committees are advisory in nature, and all actions of the committees are subject to the review and approval of the President.
During the academic year, each committee meets on a regular schedule and on a call basis as necessary. An appointed secretary keeps minutes of the actions of the committee and distributes copies to the members of the committee, the President, the Deans of Instruction, the Dean of Students, and the Dean of Student Development as appropriate.
Committee items requiring administrative action are communicated to the appropriate administrator, and a written response is returned to the committee indicating the action taken on the committee’s recommendation. Ad hoc committees are formulated and members are appointed by the President as deemed necessary.
Copies of the committee structure are available from the President’s Office.
