List of Councils

A council is a group of representatives from each of DCCCD’s colleges and locations who hold similar positions. Regular meetings are held to facilitate horizontal communication across the district. Council members work cooperatively on districtwide projects, share ideas and best practices, and stay abreast of the latest trends in their areas. In addition, “functional councils” may be formed by the chancellor or by the main councils; they report in general to the “sponsoring” council.
