What is the Classified Senate?

About Us

The Butte College Classified Senate represents all professional staff members of the Butte-Glenn Community College District in matters relating to participatory governance and assumes the primary role in disseminating information and gathering input on behalf of the Classified Staff. 

The Senate works in conjunction with the California Community Colleges Classified Senate (4CS) to promote and clarify the roles, rights, responsibilities and opportunities for Community College Classified Staff to become involved in participatory governance and to contribute toward the Mission of the California Community Colleges as originally described in AB 1725.

The Senate does not deal with any matters related to "collective bargaining" or hiring committees. To better explain the differences between the District's relationship with the staff union (CSEA) and the Classified Senate, please refer to the Delineation of Duties as agreed to by CSEA, the District, and the Classified Senate.
