Reference KCTCS Policy: 



It is the policy of Somerset Community College (SCC) to create teams that perform various and needed functions at SCC. SCC will do this by encouraging faculty and staff to complete the Team Creation form and submit it to their respective council/association (Executive, Faculty, Staff, Management Councils or Student Government) for review. After this review, the Team Creation Form will be submitted to the Leadership Council for review and subsequent approval or denial. The following terms will be defined for the establishment of various types of teams:

  • Standing Committee - Recurring team with a specified annual objective, usually dictated by SCC, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), or other large agency such as an accrediting body.
  • Ad Hoc Workgroup - Temporary team formed to address a specific short-term, non-recurring task.
  • Event Committee - Recurring team tasked with planning a specific event that occurs each year.
  • Council - Recurring team tasked with the administration of different areas within the college as a part of the shared governance model.
