The Lassen Community College governance structure involves students, faculty, staff, administration, and the community through the Governing Board in the planning and operation of the college.
The governance structure and practices embrace the Lassen Community College values of supporting inclusiveness of individual and community viewpoints in collaborative decision-making processes; promoting mutual respect and trust through open communication and actions; and fostering integrity as the foundation for all we do.
