Participatory Governance

Spanish Translation  Arabic Translation


In December 2017, inspired by the College's work and discussion with an Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) Partnership Resource Team (PRT), over 30 Cuyamaca faculty, staff, administrators, and students participated in a retreat that launched the College's governance redesign and continuous efforts. After a 18 months of inquiry and discussion, a new governance structure and guiding principles were established for the College's governance redesign:

  • Transparency
  • Efficiency
  • Representation
  • Accountability
  • Evaluation/Continuous Improvement
  • Alignment
  • Clarification of Roles

As part of the continuous assessment and improvement process, governance groups and the overall governance structure are evaluated on a regular basis, with annual surveys of governance group members, annual governance group goal-setting and evaluation processes, and bi-annual surveys of the campus community.
