Shared Governance Committees

Shared Governance Committees

Participative decision-making at Cuyamaca College is achieved in the spirit of cooperation, collaboration, and collegiality. It promotes the mission, vision and values of the college and ensures their achievement through the planning process, initiatives, policies and procedures.

--

The purpose of the Cuyamaca College governance structure is to provide each constituency group the opportunity to participate in planning processes, and initiatives and the development of college policies and procedures through their representatives. Functionally, this is organized and carried out through a system of committees, councils, and task forces created to formalize collegiality, facilitate communication, solve issues at the levels closest to the individuals affected, and develop effective plans and processes. These structures provide opportunities for all interests to be considered and a resolution to be reached.

--

The final authority for governance at Cuyamaca College is the Governing Board. The Governing Board delegates authority to the President through the District Chancellor. The President and all constituency groups are committed to a functional and effective participative decision-making process.
