Welcome to the Mt. San Jacinto College Classified Senate Website!
What is the Classified Senate?
The Classified Senate is the primary governing body for classified professionals at MSJC. Its elected members come from full time and part time members, from both campuses, and from a broad array of departments and serve to provide an equal voice in the college governance process.
In creating the California Community College approach to shared governance, state statutes indicate that the classified members shall be incorporated into college deliberations regarding a variety of issues, ranging from safety to budget allocation processes and administrative evaluation. The Senate is the body representing the classified in such issues, and it is the body that appoints classified to committees, hiring panels, Staff Development, and the like. The Senate is not a union; it is distinct from the MSJC CSEA, which represents the Classified in issues dealing with wage and working conditions.
