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.
What is it's Purpose?
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. Classified Senate is involved in every area of our college and is committed to the belief that input from classified staff, the people in the trenches, provide essential contributions to the institution’s ability to make sound “educated” decisions with the best available information. 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.
"The mission of Mt. San Jacinto Community College Classified Senate is to promote the valuable contributions made by Classified Senate Staff in creating an environment that will lead to the greatest level of student success and to recognize the roles and accomplishments of Classified Staff. In collaboration with administration, faculty and students, the classified employee role is to support and enrich our educational environment."
