Academic Senate Elections
RUN FOR ACADEMIC SENATE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Academic Senate representatives do not represent themselves but rather the broader interests of the faculty, the campus and our students, and always with an eye on the faculty prerogatives in accordance with the Title 5 section 53203.
The primary function of the LAVC Academic Senate is the make recommendations to the President with respect to academic and professional matters.
We rely on the collective wisdom and professional expertise of faculty to develop its recommendations. All faculty are encouraged to become involved through participation in Academic Senate committees and work groups, communication with their Division (cluster) Senators, and attending Academic State meetings that meet every third Thursday of the month.
