Structure and Membership



 The Instructional Council is an advisory board to the Dean of Instruction in all matters that pertain to instruction.  It is also a forum for the exchange of information.  All major decisions, including schedules and the instructional budget, are made by the Instructional Council in conjunction with the Faculty Assembly through the shared governance process.

The Instructional Council is composed, mostly, of supervisors within the instructional area.  To be more specific, the following are the IC members (in alphabetical order of the individuals, along with a direct link to their email, and their positions):
