01:03:02 Student and Faculty Participation in Development of Campus Policies and Procedures


  1. Chattanooga State Community College recognizes that students and faculty are vital components of the campus community which must effectively contribute to the progress and general welfare of the College as governed by the Board. Students should have a primary interest in matters of student life, including discipline and housing, and faculty should have a primary interest in academic affairs, including curriculum, program changes and development, and admission and graduation requirements. Furthermore, both students and faculty have a direct interest in both student and academic affairs. Therefore, it is the policy of the Board that the College shall establish effective means whereby students and faculty can participate in and make recommendations concerning the formation of policies and programs relating to student and academic affairs.
  2. The College shall determine and make known the method and degree of student and faculty involvement in specific areas of institutional decision making, subject to the approval of the chancellor.
  3. Chattanooga State makes provision for both student and faculty participation in the development of campus policies and programs through membership on standing and ad hoc committees, activities of the Student Government Association (SGA) and Faculty Council, input through various surveys, faculty meetings and other means of college communication.
