Executive Governance Council

The Executive Governance Council (EGC) is the highest level participatory governance committee in Continuing Education. Accordingly, members of the committee are the highest level executives in the institution, representing Presidents and Vice Presidents from the Academic and Classified Senates.

The primary function of EGC is to promote governance participation and engagement by vetting concerns and topics through appropriate committee structure for detailed review, analysis, and recommendation to EGC. EGC accepts and reviews committee recommendations, rendering an executive recommendation to the Continuing Education President.
