Chancellor's Office System Operations

 

 Executive

The mission of the California Community Colleges Board of Governors and the Chancellor's Office is to empower the community colleges through leadership, advocacy and support. The California Community Colleges Board of Governors and the chancellor share a vision of a better future for Californians by exemplifying exceptional leadership, advocacy and support on behalf of the community colleges. Their guidance provides access to lifelong learning for all citizens and creates a skilled, progressive workforce to advance the state’s interests.


The California Community Colleges Board of Governors sets policy and provides guidance for the 72 districts and 112 colleges that constitute the system. The 17-member board is appointed by the governor and formally interacts with state and federal officials and other organizations. The board also selects a chancellor for the system. The chancellor, through a formal process of consultation, brings recommendations to the board. The Consulation Council is chaired by the chancellor and meets once per month to review and evaluate policy proposals and related issues.
