DISTRICT ACADEMIC SENATE

Welcome to the website of the LACCD District Academic Senate (DAS). 
 
The DAS is charged via Title 5 of the California Educational Code to represent the faculty of the Los Angeles Community College District in all academic and professional matters (10+1).
 
The DAS Executive Committee is composed of five officers and the Senate presidents from the nine colleges. Three additional representatives are selected from each college to represent the campus, and combined with the members of the Executive Committee constitute the full District Academic Senate. 
 
As set forth in the DAS Constitution, the Exec Committee brings issues, resolutions and other matters from the Educational Services Center (District Office) and the nine college senates to the full Academic Senate for discussion and action.  If approved, the Exec then sends approved motions to the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees, where depending on the type of issue, and through the shared governance process, the Senate and the Board will seek mutual agreement or rely primarily on the Senate's recommendations as defined in Article XVIII of the LACCD Board Rules.
 
DAS Executive meetings are generally held monthly throughout the year at the District Office, while the entire DAS meets at one of the nine campuses at least five times per year.
 
Notices of meetings, including agendas, minutes and relevant background materials are posted in the lobby of the LACCD Educational Services Center at 770 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA and online under Agendas.
