Student Membership on College Committees
(Student Development Council Policy)

Student input on college committees is valuable for the student, staff and community. Committee work provides a learning experience for students as well as an opportunity to be an active participant in the policy-making and environment shaping of the college community.

Policies have a major impact on PCC's mission to recruit and retain students, and student input provides staff with the viewpoint of the individuals we are hired to serve. It also provides employees the opportunity, as educators, to mentor and pass on "lab experience" in group process, communication, decision-making and other life-long skills.

Committees are an integral part of the Portland Community College's policy- making process; therefore, PCC committees that recommend, formulate, or review academic or student affairs policy shall include student member- ship.

Effective: Fall Term 1996
