Shared Governance


Shared Governance is best demonstrated when the college, as a whole, is committed to a common vision of the college mission. Because participants in the shared governance process will be empowered with the responsibility to make decisions that affect the college as a whole, they will operate in a consensus-building fashion where open communication and accountability are paramount.

Shared Governance utilizes the collective intelligence of the college community in planning and decision-making and involves joint effort in the development of college policy. This process fosters a shared confidence that is extended to all other areas of responsibility within the institution, e.g., departments, programs, and units.
