The Compensation Committee is responsible for reviewing current and proposed allocation of the salary pool as well as all benefits, including retirement programs for faculty and staff.

The Diversity and Equity Advisory Board serves as an advisory group to the President of the College and the Cabinet on all matters related to diversity and equity regarding staff and faculty. The Board promotes and nurtures an inclusive campus culture that values different backgrounds, experiences, ideas and opinions, recognizing the various intersections of identities that make up the CC community. Its work helps ensure that the College addresses on a continuing basis all of the possible implications of the protections as stated in our anti-discrimination policy statement. Specific duties of the DEAB include, but are not limited to: monitoring campus climate through data collection and policy development; overseeing educational programming for staff and faculty on issues of diversity and equity; consulting with faculty, staff, and administration on curriculum and other program development and future diversity/equity goals; and becoming campus leaders knowledgeable about current diversity-related issues in higher education.

Please consider what you may be able to offer as well as what you might
learn from your participation in these important campus committees. You can
