Classified Senate

Evergreen Valley College has approved the reinstatement of a Classified Senate. Since December 2018, EVC Classified Staff have been working on the establishment and recognition of a classified senate at EVC. Classified meetings to draft and finalize a constitution and bylaws occurred on February 8th, April 29th. On June 5th, 2019, EVC Classified Senate steering committee met with the CSEA E-Board and Negotiations Team to discuss the possible establishment of a classified senate and to address any concerns. June 6th, information was provided to EVC Academic Senate with full support. A constitution and bylaws were voted and approved on July 12th, 2019. An informational session was held on July 16th to provide information, answer questions, and clarify the purpose and role of a classified senate. By August 13th, 2019 EVC Classified personnel elected officers for an EVC Classified Senate.  

EVC Classified Senate was recognized by the California Community Colleges Classified Senate (4CS) on August 19th, 2019. 

The EVC Classified Senate seeks to promote the choice of classified staff on non-collective bargaining issues and to provide recommendations and views on matters affecting the classified staff and the conduct, welfare, and growth of Evergreen Valley College.
