5 Working Together – CSSOs and Faculty Scenario: The current composition of the college Curriculum Committee does not include a counselor. The CSSO upon the request of the Director of Counseling has asked the Academic Senate president to update the Curriculum Committee composition to include a counselor as a voting member.
