Senate Executive and Roster

AS Roster 2





LaNae Jaimez, Ph.D   LaNae Jaimez, Ph.D, SCC Academic Senate President (2020-2022), Psychology Faculty  

   Educational Background BS Psychology at University of Oklahoma; MA/PhD Psychology at University of Texas, Austin

   As I enter the first year of my second term as Academic Senate President, my goal is to continue to create a space where all faculty voices will be heard and considered as we make decisions regarding professional and academic matters that fall under Senate purview. I commit to the Senate goal of supporting antiracism and equity in education including a review of our curriculum and faculty hiring processes. I’m in favor of all things that help our students succeed. I have been on Senate for 12 years serving as Senator, Secretary/Treasurer, Vice President, Acting Senate President and President. My scholarly interests include anxiety disorders, biological psychology and positive psychology. I truly love the psychological sciences! Outside of my work at SCC, I enjoy walking/hiking (nature is one of my favorite places), yoga, gardening and reading. I recently experience “Goat Yoga” and, for the first time, I am growing a winter garden. One of my secret pleasures is reading books about near death experiences.  


   JSJosh Scott, SCC Academic Senate Vice President (2020-2022), English Faculty                      





Erin Duan   Erin Duane, SCC Academic Senate  Secretary/Treasurer (At-Large, 2019-2021), Learning Resource Faculty 

   Educational Background: BA History at Gonzaga University; MLIS (Library Information Science) at San Jose State University; ONE Certificate in Online Teaching & Design

   As the Secretary/Treasurer, my goals are to continue to report out Senate activities accurately and expeditiously via the Hot Topics and manage our funds. Sitting at the table with our faculty leadership is an honor. My absolute favorite scholarly interests circle around religion, feminism, critical race theory, art, music, or history.  I've been part of Senate for almost ten years (2011) and I've been involved in PD/Flex Cal (2007), Curriculum (2008-present), and Distance Education committees (2020). My favorite pastimes are fabric related: I love sewing and quilting and am happiest when I’m planning out a new design or project.  I love making clothes for myself and making small quilt art projects like wall hangings or pillows.  I’m also addicted to yoga and the beach, but not at the same time, and when I really need to escape reality, I will knit something.
