Shared Governance

A Message from the Dean's Office

The University and the College have a long tradition of shared governance through which our on-campus community consults with and advises administrators, shaping the policies and processes that affect us all. Shared governance ensures that diverse perspectives and a collective wisdom inform our actions, providing a strong foundation for the success of our institution.

CLAS faculty, staff, and students have opportunities through appointed committee service and elected governance bodies to understand issues facing the College and University and to contribute to decisions on policy and procedure.

We value the contributions you can make to shared governance! Please click on the links below to learn more about the opportunities available to you at the College and University levels. The pages describing CLAS faculty, staff, and student governance have “contact” links that put you in touch with people who can help you become more involved.

The College is fortunate to have outstanding and deeply committed faculty, staff, and students. We thank all those who participate for lending their energy and expertise to our shared governance system!
