Shared Governance Policy Statement

Within the University’s statutory role and mission and the Board of Trustees’ operational mission, all constituencies have a role and a responsibility to assist the University to achieve excellence in all areas of University activity. The Board of Trustees welcomes and expects the participation of faculty, students, staff and other University constituencies in the decision-making process. The Board of Trustees delegates to the President, as the chief executive officer of the University, full authority and responsibility for administering the University within the policies and procedures established by the Board of Trustees.

The President must establish and maintain an open environment of communication with all members of the University community and establish avenues for consultation and recommendation by faculty, students, and staff regarding policy matters considered by the Board of Trustees. The Board expects the President to elicit the participation and facilitate the fulfillment of the roles and responsibilities of the University’s constituencies and organized, constituent groups in the University’s internal, decision-making processes. It is through the initiative, participation and effort of all the University’s constituencies that excellence is achieved.
