To facilitate the process, the Committee on College Assessment is formed as follows:
Active membership is open to GCC faculty, staff, administrators, and enrolled students. According to the Agreement between the Guam Community College Faculty Union Local 6476 AFT/AFL-CIO & the Board of Trustees Guam Community for Faculty 2010– 2016, Article VII – Participatory Governance (p 24 of 116), the members of the Committee must include:
- No fewer than four (4) faculty members. (Best practice is to have one faculty member representing each of the schools, a non-instructional faculty, and a secondary faculty);
- Other members may be assigned by the Faculty Senate President if requested by the Chairperson after all other committees are filled.
- Members from the administration and staff shall be appointed by the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the College.
- In addition, the CCA may include, as recommended, to have the following: One (1) student representative from the Council on Postsecondary Student Affairs; additional faculty, staff, or administrators as needed.
This model of collaboration, linked through a board-union agreement, is primarily the building block of our GCC comprehensive assessment initiative. A policy document passed by the Board of Trustees (Policy 306, Comprehensive Assessment of Instructional Programs, Student Services, Administrative Units and the Board of Trustees) is the institutional mandate that drives all campus-wide assessment activities.
