Shared Governance

Benjamin Building

Shared governance, the set of practices under which faculty, staff and students participate in significant decisions regarding the operations of the institution, is a hallmark of all great universities and colleges. The College of Education understands the importance of broad participation and collaborative decision making and is proud of its shared governance structure. The interdependence among constituent groups at all levels of the college requires complex coordination, excellent communication among the levels, and appropriate joint planning and execution. Faculty, staff and students, through their representatives in the College Senate, are invested in the College’s success and fulfillment of its mission.
