The Personnel Services Committee counsels and advises working groups and the College community. The committee makes recommendations concerning matters pertaining to the welfare of the faculty (both instructional and administrative) and classified staff of the College. The committee studies, gathers information, conducts discussions, and otherwise surveys the environment relating to this charge. In addition, the committee discharges other duties as delegated by the College.
The committee's recommendations are sent to the Campus Councils for approval.
