The Long Beach City College Classified Senate has been honored with a “Model Senate” award by the 4CS, the state-wide organization for Classified Senates in California Community Colleges.

“It has been exciting to see the growth of all our Senators, and we look forward to having more classified participate in shared governance this coming year,” said LBCC Classified Senate President Anne Engel. “It’s an honor to be recognized as a Model Senate by 4CS. Thank you to everyone who helped us accomplish so much this first year.”

4CS recognized LBCC’s Classified Senate’s work including the establishment of a participatory governance body elected by its constituents, operating professionally under bylaws and/or a constitution approved by its constituency, recognition by the college administration as a governance participant, and encouraging a cooperative working and professional relationship with collective bargaining agents and considers input or concerns of such groups.

The Long Beach Community College District formally recognized the LBCC Classified Senate in December 2016.
