ECC Consultation, Operational and Advisory Committees

The decision-making process at El Camino College is grounded in respect for the roles and scope of authority of each of the college’s constituencies.  Groups that contribute recommendations to the decision-making processes are organized into three categories:  consultation, advisory, and operational committees.
Collegial Consultation Committees
Consultation committees provide input into College initiatives, policies and procedures when appropriate.  Recommendations developed in collegial consultation committees emerge from discussion and input from all major college constituencies.

Area and Division Councils 
There are four Area Councils and their respective Division Councils which coordinate and fulfill operational, procedural and policy implementation at the college.  The purpose of these committees is to provide an opportunity for faculty, staff, students, and managers to share information and to identify issues that require resolution.

Advisory Committees 
Advisory committees perform specific functions that benefit the college community or respond to issues of importance to college constituencies.  Recommendations from these committees are made to the appropriate manager and, when applicable, brought to Cabinet by the area Vice President for consideration.  Periodically, task forces or ad hoc committees are formed to address specific issues needing immediate resolution.
