College Committees

Glen Oaks Community College operates under a shared governance model. Committees are the operating system of our institution. Our committees involve members from all areas within the institution and support the development and implementation of new ideas, improvements to support student success and provide an avenue for problem-solving. Our committees help organize some of the most important work on our campus.

Below is a list of standing committees and the chair person for each committee. If you would like to learn more about these groups, see copies of the meeting minutes or make suggestions and recommendations for the groups to consider, please complete the Request Committee Information form found below.
