The faculty of the College participate in the governance of the College through the Faculty Assembly and its committees. The faculty play a central role in developing curriculum and academic policies, in setting standards of excellence, and in maintaining the quality of a CCS education. The Faculty Assembly is the principal vehicle through which the faculty fulfill this role. While the Faculty Assembly cannot by its decisions bind the administration or Board of Trustees, the administration and Board accord great respect to the Assembly and seek to cooperate with it in all areas affecting the well-being of the College. The Faculty Assembly operates according to the Faculty Assembly By- laws and through a set of committees. The By-Laws and committee guidelines are posted on the College’s Blackboard portal.
