    Everyone should know what the system does and be able to get involved some way if affected, but they don’t need to be on committees.

      Everyone at some level. If you don’t contribute, don’t complain.

    Council system could be made much more effective by:
    – improving representation/equity
    – support specific charges/tasks
    – processing dissent
    – modeling transparency

    President, VPS, Managers, Classified, Faculty, Students

    All members represent college interest, NOT specific affinity groups such as union. Governance is not collective bargaining.

    What is a “stakeholder”?

      “Stakeholders” is too broadly define in the current governance system. “What is a stakeholder and how do we know it?” is a fundamental question.

    DIVERSITY of people, perspectives, roles and backgrounds.

      Apply an equity lens to the representation and participation question. Union and student leaders do not necessarily represent the diverse experience, views, and ideas of faculty, staff, and students in questions of policy and planning.

      1 council per person. Given release time and expected to participate fully.
      No more placeholders!

      Faculty should lead the academic program. There should be discipline faculty chairs; division deans should be rotated from the faculty.

    Curriculum – academic
    Line management – management
    Rule making
    Rule enforcement
    Trying to define collaboration model when trying to make decisions want rule enforcement

      Administrators should be elected by faculty and staff as their support team and have no say in hiring and firing.
