Overview of Faculty Senate

Welcome to Northshore Technical Community College! NTCC provides a variety of learning opportunities for students offering academic, technical and career paths by a committed faculty and staff focused on student success. Students may embrace learning through online, face-to-face, and industry based experiences.

As the President of the Northshore Technical Community College Faculty Senate, I would like to personally welcome you to our website and thank you for taking a few moments to learn more about the senate and our college. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the faculty's representative in matters of college-wide concern.  I and my Senate colleagues will work diligently to ensure that our processes of shared governance at Northshore Technical Community College will continue to be sound and effective.

The senate and its leadership are here to serve and represent all faculty employed by Northshore Technical Community College as a collective voice in matters concerning the faculty and as a means for shared governance at the college. Because of our role in the learning process, faculty have traditional and legitimate rights and responsibilities in making decisions and policies in academic matters.  

As your faculty senate we strongly encourage interested faculty to become involved in the governance of our college. It is a rewarding service that expands insight on the complexities and needs of Northshore Technical Community College. It is also an effective way to increase networking and connections with other faculty. If you have an interest in shared governance service please consider participating. Feel free to contact your faculty senator or any faculty senate leader to express your interest.

In closing, thank you for giving us this opportunity to serve you and we invite all interested faculty members to attend our monthly meetings.

Karolyn Harrell, MS
Faculty Senate President (2018-2020)
