Expanded Cabinet


Expanded Cabinet was established to ensure that all constituent group leaders are aware of and have the opportunity to discuss important issues facing the District.  Expanded Cabinet provides a forum for open, honest dialogue between the administration and constituent group leaders and for all employee groups to introduce new ideas and anticipate future concerns.

Expanded Cabinet oversees the District’s compliance with accreditation standards and eligibility requirements, and oversees the integration of all District planning efforts.

Expanded Cabinet serves as the highest level advisory group to the President and the Executive Cabinet regarding issues facing the District.

Committee History

Expanded Cabinet in its current form was established in 2012.  Executive Cabinet, which has been in existence for many years, is comprised of the top level administrators of the District who discuss numerous confidential topics, including personnel decisions.  A few years ago, Expanded Cabinet was formed to include the academic deans and some of the District directors to discuss other, non-confidential issues affecting the District.  In 2012, Expanded Cabinet was further expanded to include leadership from each of the employee groups, in order for the Executive Cabinet to benefit from the valuable input and advice of constituent group membership.
