  • About the College Senate

    The first comprehensive governance plan for Fiorello H. LaGuardia Community College was created in 1978 with the goal of translating into practical form the ideals and mission of the college, built around a core belief in making the best of higher education and professional opportunity available to all those who seek them.

    The principles embodied in the governance plan are: governance of the College is participatory, shared among the faculty, the staff, the alumni, the students, and the administration; the governance body provides an arena for the voices of elected representatives of all constituencies to be heard; the leadership of the governance body is elected by its members.
