The Board of Trustees governs on behalf of the citizens of the Mt. San Antonio Community College District in accordance with the authority granted and duties defined in Education Code Section 70902. The Board establishes policies that define the institutional mission and set prudent, ethical and legal standards for college operations.
Administrative Procedures (AP) are revised, updated, or edited based on recommendations from units across the campus following a systematic revision and review process and discussion by designated groups whose work is affected by changes to ensure accuracy and broad institutional dialogue as the basis for building consensus. These groups may include the Academic Senate, the classified unions, and the Faculty Association, along with the appropriate councils and committees whose purpose and function determine their participation given the particular issues under discussion.
