Shared Governance

Definition of Shared Governance

Shared governance is the structure and process by which employees, students, and the Board of Education contribute to the College’s institutional‐level planning, policy, and procedure decision‐making.
Inherent in shared governance is a commitment to trust, collaboration, communication, transparency, inclusiveness, honesty, and integrity. Shared governance provides an opportunity for campus‐wide input and feedback while recognizing that the ultimate authority to make decisions lies with the Board of Education and President.
