The Pasadena Area Community College District Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve the reorganization of Pasadena City College's administration. The reorganization adopts the "Interim Plan" approved by the PCC College Council in May of 2012.
One of the major objectives of the reorganization is to reduce the total costs of administration, while increasing productivity and cost effectiveness.
Each academic discipline will also gradually migrate to a faculty governance structure as determined by a mutual agreement between the PCC Academic Senate and the PCC administration. A key reason for the new organization is to return the academic management of disciplines to the faculty. The Academic Senate will review and recommend on how best to accomplish this, either through faculty department chairs or through other ways.
The reorganization will aid student success by allowing greater faculty collaboration and innovation across disciplines. It will also make it easier to create a coordinated student-centered class schedule that makes better use of classroom resources and avoids scheduling conflicts.
