The District Council (DC) functions as the highest level District-wide participatory governance body focusing on strategic planning and policy, especially the critical linkage of planning and budgeting. It is the official conduit for communication between the Mission College Governance and Planning Council, the West Valley College Council, the District Administrative Services Council, the Chancellor, and the Board of Trustees. Opportunity is provided for input from all District constituencies. The Council encourages open communication and respects the needs and expectations of faculty, classified staff, students, and administrators. The Council promotes achieving college-based mission, goals, and priorities. It strengthens relationships among faculty, classified staff, administrators, and students, as well as with the statewide community college system.
