The College Senate is the governing body of the college. Its membership consists of faculty, staff, and students. The Senate meets once or twice a month from September through June, and its meetings are open to the entire college community.

There are 8 Standing Committees of the Senate: the Executive Committee, the Committee on Committees, the Curriculum Committee, the Academic Standing Committee, the Committee on Professional Development, the Committee on Campus Affairs, the Committee on Elections, and the Committee on Evaluation of Program Effectiveness. The members of the Executive Committee and the Committee on Committees are elected from within the Senate. The members of the other 6 committees are chosen from the entire college community.

The Executive Committee fixes the agenda of each Senate meeting, and it coordinates the activities of all Standing and Ad Hoc Senate committees. The Committee on Committees handles issues related to the staffing of all the Senate committees.

The Curriculum Committee formally considers all aspects of course and program proposals. The Academic Standing Committee determines regulations and policies concerning academic standing, processes of matriculation, degree requirements, and grading systems.

The Committee on Professional Development develops programs which promote the professional growth and development of all college staff members. The Committee on Campus Affairs reviews policies concerning the long-range planning and operation of physical facilities as well as services and activities relating to the campus good and welfare.

The Committee on Elections recommends procedures concerning Senate-related elections held around the college and supervises them. The Committee on Evaluation of Program Effectiveness measures and determines the effectiveness of curricula and other educational programs.
