Shared Governance

Shared governance is the set of principles and practices that allows administration, faculty, staff, and other campus constituencies to participate in significant decisions concerning the operation and welfare of the College. Successful shared governance depends on open communication, mutual respect, collegiality, transparency, and collaboration.

The president maintains primary administrative responsibility for the institution, but, in areas where primary responsibility rests with the faculty, the faculty’s opinions, recommendations, and advice are routinely sought by, and conveyed to, the president. On occasions when institutional leaders must act in the best interest of the College to respond to a major issue or to an external request without following the full consultative process, the representative bodies will be informed as soon as possible and be given an opportunity to comment.
