NOTE: The Meeting Documents packet/s contain readings that are meant to be reviewed in advance, in preparation for the corresponding meeting. Meeting minutes are not posted until they have been approved by the Senate Body. Supplemental documents are added as a courtesy for documents that missed the Thursday morning at 9 am Senate President's cut-off time for acceptance of meeting documents, announcements, and presentations for the following Tuesday's regular Senate meeting.
Please see the bottom of this page for more about the Agenda, Meeting Docs, and Minutes.
FALL SEMESTER 2014
AGENDA: In accordance with the Brown Act, a physical copy of the agenda is posted outside of the Faculty House at least 72 hours before the meeting. The Academic Senate Staff Aide posts a copy of the agenda on this page, and e-mails a copy to Senators. The Academic Senate Staff Aide e-mails the agenda and a link to this page to all OCC Faculty each week. Faculty can review the current agenda and related meeting documents, as well as approved minutes from previous meetings, by clicking on the link in their meeting notification.
MEETING DOCUMENTS: The Meeting Documents contain readings that are meant to be reviewed in advance, in preparation for the corresponding Academic Senate meeting. The AS Staff Aide posts the Meeting Documents packet on this page and also e-mails a copy to Senators. The Staff Aide also posts a copy of these documents and the audio recording of the meeting (if available) to the Academic Senate site of the OCC Portal.
SUPPLEMENTAL DOCUMENTS: The Supplemental Meeting Documents contain documents that missed the Senate President's cut-off time of 9 am on Thursday morning for presentations, announcements and documents. Whenever possible, documents should be emailed to both the Senate President and the Senate Secretary by Thursday at 9 am for the regular Tuesday meeting. This helps ensure that Senators are able to review any documents in advance of the meeting. The AS Staff Aide will post supplemental documents after they are made available from the Senate Secretary.
MINUTES: With the assistance of the Academic Senate Staff Aide, the Academic Senate Secretary prepares the draft of the Academic Senate minutes and sends those draft minutes to the Senators. Senators review the draft minutes prior to the next meeting for approval. The final edits that Senators have agreed upon at the meeting are incorporated into the draft minutes by the AS Secretary, who then sends the final version to the AS Staff Aide. The AS Staff Aide posts the approved minutes on this page and also on the OCC Portal. The AS Secretary also sends a courtesy copy of the weekly approved AS minutes to the Board of Trustees, CCCD Chancellor/Vice Chancellor, College President, and Faculty Union President.
