What types of problems or issues do we currently try to solve through governance? What are the BIG problems of the college that we should be trying to solve? How do you recommend we ensure timely follow through of newly approved policies? Please elaborate.

From Spring Conference:
System integration. We do not have transparent, consistent evaluation.
There is a lack of clear descriptions for positions. Structure is built around champions and persons for initiatives rather than responsibilities which would ensure follow-through.
Cultural competency – tried and still
Data use and analysis (we don’t even have a Council for this)
Follow-through, coordination and implementation
Planful scheduling that takes advantage of the full work day
Scheduling of classes so that students have clear pathways and access to all the courses they need
The governance system – dismantle and put back together in a cohesive manner
Problems are different for each council
No follow through
There is no accountability
There is an abdication/diffusion of responsibility
When policies do not work, what is the open system by which feedback/correction can be made?
Roles and responsibilities of 1) leadership, 2) supervision, and 3) managers need to be defined and held respectively accountable
