As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. Consequently, the business education industry has placed a renewed emphasis on accountability and impact in assessment. To respond to this development, we must reinforce that assessment and impact are even more important, making them a driving force throughout our institutions.

The Assessment and Impact Conference is your opportunity to explore current trends and global best practices, network with peers and experienced accreditation volunteers, and get a glimpse at what peer institutions are doing to stay current in impact and assurance of learning (AoL).

Whether your institution has recently begun the assessment process, measuring impact, or is looking to take your AoL systems to the next level, this conference offers ample opportunities to gather new knowledge and insight to put a strong assessment system and impact framework into place.

The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges sets policy and provides guidance for the 72 districts and 112 colleges which constitute the system. The 17-member board is appointed by the governor and formally interacts with state and federal officials and other state organizations. The Board of Governors selects a chancellor for the system. The chancellor, through a formal process of consultation, brings recommendations to the board, which has the legislatively granted authority to develop and implement policy for the colleges. Additionally, each of the 72 community college districts in the state has a locally-elected Board of Trustees, responsive to local community needs and charged with the operations of the local colleges. The governance system of the California Community Colleges is one which uses processes of shared governance. In March 1988, the Board of Governors adopted a process known as “consultation,” through which a council composed of representatives of selected community college institutional and organizational groups, assist in development and recommendation of policy to the chancellor and Board of Governors. The council meets regularly throughout the year. It develops and recommends policy, and reviews comments developed by other groups, locally-elected boards, and the California Legislature. The formal consultation process allows the massive community college system to advise the chancellor, who makes recommendations to the Board of Governors on matters of policy. The purpose of the consultation process is to strengthen a system of communications, policy development, and review to ensure the quality and effectiveness of college operations and programs.

Planning is underway for the California Community Colleges Veterans Summit. Save the date.

We owe tremendous gratitude to our military veterans who have endured immense sacrifice in defense of our nation.

With an estimated 1.8 million veterans residing in California, our state’s veteran population is the largest in the nation. An increasing number of veterans returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan will look to one of the 114 California community colleges as the most accessible and affordable educational options available.

The California community college system is continuously seeking ways to improve the educational experience of our student veterans. Speaking to this ongoing effort, the Veterans Summit was created. The purpose of the Veterans Summit is to ensure information and effective practices can be shared between faculty, administrators and staff who work with student veterans on California Community College, California State University and University of California campuses. For some, the Summit provides an opportunity to learn from those who have significant experience serving student veterans and offers the chance to make important contacts. For others, it provides an opportunity to share and showcase practices that have been effective at their college, hopefully helping to shorten the learning curve for others.
