This is why I wanted to be a Board member,” he said.Goal 10, titled “College Communications and Community Relations,” explains the Board wishes to have more open communication on campus and with the surrounding community.

Goal eight, titled “Shared Governance,” explains the Board wishes to “arrive at a mutual agreement with the Academic Senate on a plan for faculty governance of academic disciplines.”
