Shared Governance

What does "Shared Governance" mean at Platt College?

Shared Governance at Platt College means the College, as a whole, is committed to a common vision found in our college mission of offering quality undergraduate education and providing graduates with competencies, skills and levels of education for employment and continued success in higher education. Because our board members, faculty, staff, students, and external constituents play a role in the shared governance process, the College operates in a consensus-building fashion where open communication and accountability are paramount.

Shared Governance utilizes the collective intelligence of the college community in planning and decision-making and involves joint effort in the development of college policies and procedures. This process fosters a shared confidence that is extended to all other areas of responsibility within the College as demonstrated through College-wide, program, and ad hoc committees.

Platt College Standing Committee Memberships

Fulfillment of Platt College‚Äôs mission requires the active involvement of all members of the College community. The committee structure represents the joint interest of all College constituencies in the operations of the College and provides a formal avenue for participation in shared governance of the institution. The suggestions, comments, and recommendations from the committees provide meaningful input into developing policies and procedures and the decision-making processes of the College. This input is vitally important to those responsible for the administration of College functions. Platt College Standing Committees make recommendations concerning governance of the College. The purpose of standing committees at Platt College is to implement and ensure shared governance of the College by making recommendations concerning said governance.
