Role of Students

From Moorpark College Making Decisions Document

Moorpark College’s Associated Students is recognized by the college as the representative body of the students. In their role representing all students, they offer opinions and make recommendations to the administration of the college and to the governing board with regard to district and college policies and procedures that will have a significant effect on students. The specific areas of their purview are:

  • grading policies;
  • codes of student conduct;
  • academic disciplinary policies;
  • curriculum development;
  • courses or programs which should be initiated or discontinued;
  • processes for institutional planning and budget development;
  • standards and policies regarding student preparation and success;
  • student services planning and development;
  • student fees within authority of the district to adopt; and
  • any other district and college policy, procedure, or related matter that the district governing board determines will have significant effect on students.

The Ventura County Community College District Governing Board agrees to provide students with an opportunity to formulate recommendations through council/committee participation and to give the recommendations and positions developed by students every reasonable consideration. Similarly, the Academic Senate consults with the Associated Students prior to making recommendations that impact student interests.
