Governance & Decision Making

Decision Making Document

The purpose of this document is to describe the structure, operational relationships, mechanisms and agreements for making transparent and inclusive decisions at Orange Coast College that affect the well-being of our institution. We believe that the document represents the united voice of all constituents, and we are committed to our continued success as a premiere institution of higher learning. As a living document, it is updated as needed by the College Council. The College Council conducts a thorough review of this document every three years based on an evaluation prepared by the Institutional Effectiveness Committee.

The contents of this document derive from collegial consultation with a representative inclusive sample of faculty, staff, administrators and students. Our decision-making is guided by our college Mission Statement, College Values (C-L-A-S-S) and College Strategic Goals. (See Educational Master Plan 2016-2021)
