Shared Governance at PCC
The six sections of shared governance represent a different campus voice, each with designated areas of concern. Prior to taking action, the Board of Trustees consults and gives respectful consideration to the opinions expressed by each section of shared governance. The Board of Trustees approved Policy 3000, Shared Governance.
Educational Services is charged with the responsibility of facilitating and supporting the college's Shared Governance process. In an on-going effort to encourage consultation, collegiality, and transparency, Educational Services in collaboration with the college's communications and web teams have created readily accessible links to the College Council and College Council Standing Committees.
