Laney College



Older Posts and Information from Previous Years:



At the end of March, 2011 President Webb released a draft plan to reorganize the entire staffing structure of Laney College. Click here to view the plan: Reorganization Plan_4.1.11

This plan would result in major changes to the duties and responsibilities of Deans and senior administrators as well as staff-level Classified employees.

President Webb called several meetings to get input from faculty and staff about the proposed changes; a series of brown bag meetings including one for Classified staff on March 30th, and a special meeting of the College Council on April 6th.

The Classified Senate reviewed the draft of this plan and has submitted an initial response. Click here to view:

To:          All Classified Staff

From:     Your Laney College Classified Senate

Dear Laney Classified,

As we near the home stretch of another academic year, I would like to take a moment to share some accomplishments and look forward to upcoming events.

What we’ve done so far:

2009 Classified Professional Development Day

Held on October 20, 2009, this event featured guest speakers from the statewide classified senate (California Community College Classified Senates, 4CS), career development workshops, and governance/leadership workshops

Fiscal Management Update

Tom Henry from the Education Management and Assistance Corporation updated classified staff on the progress of the ongoing fiscal review at the district offices. The classified senate will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates

Educational Master Planning Process


The classified senate continues to work to ensure that the needs of classified staff are represented in the Educational Master Plan. Because future requests for personnel, facilities and funding will all be tied to this document, it is critical that we are involved in the committees and working groups that make up the EMP process.

….and coming this spring

Classified Appreciation Day, May 19th, 2010 11:30am – 2:00pm, Laney Bistro


I am happy to announce that this year’s event will be a true celebration of the contribution classified staff make to the success of Laney College. Join us at the Laney Bistro on May 19th as we bring this academic year to a close.


Now is a great time to get involved in the classified senate, by joining the executive committee, attending a meeting or volunteering at an event. We are only as strong as we choose to be, so get involved!
