The Academic and Student Affairs (ASA) Councils and Commission were created with the purpose of reducing the historic number of system-level task forces. The result allows Academic and Student Affairs to provide venues where issues of mutual interest might be addressed, improve our ability to communicate with our constituents, and allow our faculty, student, and professional staff leadership to work in ways that are solution-oriented.
In addition, we have a shared interest in working to assure greater efficiencies in how we communicate ASA work plans. In the respective advisory roles, each of the councils plays an important part in helping staff identify and refine policies and procedures as well as work with the Academic and Student Affairs division to address system wide issues in ways that positively impact learner experiences.
The Academic Affairs Council is an ongoing council with an advisory role to the senior vice chancellor for academic and student affairs and the Academic and Student Affairs Coordinating Commission.
