The role of classified and educational administrators and confidential employees in 
governance and decision-making at the college is determined by the scope of responsibility

  • Coordinating and directing communications, personnel, projects and resources to 
    meet college needs and oversee assigned activities;
  • Assuring that program implementation satisfies established college, state and 
    federal standards, requirements, laws, codes, rules, regulations, policies and 
  • Supervising and evaluating the performance of assigned faculty and classified 
    personnel and assuring that the work of these employees complies with established 
    standards, requirements, and procedures;
  • Interviewing potential employees and recommending hiring, transfers, and 
  • Monitoring and analyzing assigned operations, activities, departments and programs 
    to determine educational and financial effectiveness and operational efficiency;
  • Providing consultation and technical expertise to administrators, faculty and 
    others concerning assigned programs and related standards, requirements, 
    practices, schedules, strategies, plans, goals, objectives, laws, codes, regulations, 
    policies and procedures; and,
  • Developing and preparing the annual preliminary budget for assigned programs; 
    analyzing and reviewing budgetary and financial data.

The Administrative/Confidential Senate represents classified managers and educational 
administrators in governance matters. As provided in Board Policy 2510: Participation in
