    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, April 28, 2011, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California’s community college system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission will explore how priorities are set among the California community college system’s various missions and will review the system governance structure as well as the state’s community college finance mechanisms to identify ways to make the system as a whole more efficient in employing scarce resources, more focused on outcomes and more accountable for results. Based on the Commission’s findings, the Commission will issue recommendations, if warranted, to improve efficiency, accountability and transparency in the community college system.

    At this hearing, the Commission will examine the system’s governance structure in greater detail and assess the levers that are used to guide the community colleges. The Commission will hear from two students from American River College, one of whom also is the president of the Student Senate for California Community Colleges. Additionally, the Commission will hear from the president of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges and three chancellors from the Los Rios, San Mateo and Riverside Community College Districts. The Commission also will hear from the president of the Central Valley Higher Education Consortium and the executive director emeritus of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
