Shared Governance

A Collective Community

We are dedicated to developing a cultural and institutional context in which you can plan your classroom curriculum and academic career in a predictable and confident way.

Our office keeps academic policies that define the rights and responsibilities of all academic appointees. Those policies defend a longstanding system of shared governance in which elected faculty and members of the administration work together to serve the best interests of the institution.

We work hard to create and sustain a campus that is diverse, tolerant, family-friendly and sustainable.
