PAC serves as the central participatory governance council of the college. PAC’s purpose is to receive and review college policy recommendations from any and all college groups, to obtain constituent opinions, to advise the president regarding policy recommendations, to provide a venue for college-wide initiatives and to mediate communication within the college community. All broad-based collegeprocedural changes go to PAC for discussion before the president takes action.

PLANNING & BUDGET STEERING COMMITTEE (PBSC)

DECISION-MAKING BODIES


Several governing bodies contribute to administrative decisions at Fullerton College. Each body represents a different segment of the campus community, and representatives from these governing bodies make up the highest voting body, the President’s Advisory Council (PAC). Typically, administrative decisions start with one of the smaller groups, then go to PAC for a vote. If approved, PAC passes the recommendation to the president.
