        Add bidirectional arrow between governance and cabinet. Make the visual clear that ideas/policy can move UP through governance and policy can be moved DOWN to governance for work.

      With core themes and mission, information and recommendations by stakeholders create policy

      What: not sure about policy?
      Policy developed by stakeholders
      Governance funds and creates procedures to enact policy
      -> Admin approves and supports this happen
      What is the cabinet? What do they do? Who makes decisions?

    Concern:
    Let’s not reinvent the wheel. Let’s use existing best practices (and maybe some structures) to move work forward. (No glacial decision-making)

    Recommendations for Board-level policy and policy language
    Recommendations for institutional planning/strategic priorities
    Emergency council for issues related to affinity groups identified in governance (i.e. diversity)
    Scope does NOT include implementation/procedure (unless identified as emergency issue above; such as problem with procedure or implementation causing institutional harm or impact)

    Need clarity about decision-making. Who makes what decisions.

      “All decisions” is not an effective method or scope for a governance system.

    Governance structures are a series of tradeoffs: for example, more representation means less efficiency. More complexity means less transparency.
