About CSEC

The Career Service Employee Council (CSEC) was created in 2011 with the goal of representing all Career Service Employees (CSE) while supporting the College’s mission. The Steering Committee is comprised of three representatives from each campus. Representatives are nominated biennially to represent Career Service Employees in each of three service areas: Administrative Support, Facilities Support, Student Support. These representatives serve to communicate information between Career Service Employees and the Executive teams of the college; to recognize and reward outstanding employee and retiree achievement at the college and within the community; and to improve the lives and jobs of all of the college’s Career Service Employees.

Visit the CSEC Steering Committee SharePoint page to learn more about the Steering Committee’s many achievements, initiatives, and how you can get involved!

CSEC Steering Committee meetings are open to all Career Service Employees. Please see our 2018-19 meeting schedule.
