The revision to the Regents Policy to reconstitute this council was approved by the Regents May 13, 2016
Regents Policy Manual (RPM)
The purpose of the Community College Faculty Council is to provide a forum for communication among the faculties of the four NMSU community colleges and with the executive vice president and provost.
Advisory to the Provost.
Membership is comprised of eight faculty members: two faculty from each community college. The committee members from Alamogordo, Carlsbad and Dona Ana must be the sitting faculty senators, as well as Grants’ faculty senator and an additional elected tenure-track faculty member from the Grants campus. The chair will rotate as follows: Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Dona Ana, Grants. The executive vice president and provost is an ex officio member of the Community College Faculty Council
The committee members from Alamogordo, Carlsbad and Dona Ana must be the sitting faculty senators, as well as Grants’ faculty senator and an additional elected tenure-track faculty member from the Grants campus.
Community College campuses/Faculty Senate
Annual appointment/reappointment based on election of faculty senators (senators typically serve staggered, 3 year terms in the Senate.)
If a faculty senator is reelected by their campus, they would remain on the committee.
Election at a college/campus level (i.e. each Community College campus elects senators.)
None specified in policy 1.05.96, however, this group traditionally (in the old version--prior to revision and reorganization) once per semester.
This group is traditionally convened first at the Community College Roundup, which was canceled in 2017.
