SHARED GOVERNANCE

Common Council

All university personnel (academic staff, faculty, and university staff) play an important role in recommending policies to the administration in many areas; academic and curricular issues are the specific responsibility of faculty and academic staff. The Chancellor has demonstrated a commitment to strong shared governance, the success of which depends upon the administration’s openness to listening to and consulting with university personnel, and university personnel’s willingness to participate in this important responsibility.  All university members are encouraged to attend and participate in shared governance.
