2018-2019 Governance Review
Under an idealized governance system how should we, or would we, know if it is working?
Decisions are made that effect positive, observable, and measurable changes.
Decisions are made that put “students” as the priority with thought into potential outcomes
System of clear, direct flow for decisions and oversight of implementation. Councils need the AGENCY to make their work happen.
Employees awaiting council work can perform their jobs effectively. (Effective workflow.)
Decisions are made at the appropriate level by people with the expertise and robust input.
Level primarily where the action is
Accountability goes with responsibility
– Increased campus-wide understanding of (what/what/how) specifics of shared governance
– Effective communication of recommendations and decisions made
– Stakeholders feel as thought they have a voice or at least had a chance to share
perspectives/opinions on decision-making
Governance is “working” when decisions are made effectively, timely, and is supported by increased student success and strategic goal attainment.
– supports campus SD/values
Educate campus about work done weekly/monthly.
Develop accountability via transparency.
Let us know what you’re doing.
Trust is established
Achievement of core theme objectives and strategic priorities.
-> Mission fulfillment
People know what it is, know what it does, and want to work with the system.
The governance system is an I/O devise. If there is a plan, then the results can be measured. If the results meet or exceed plan projections, presumable the system works.
