Sharing responsibility for reaching collective decisions on matters of policy and procedure.
This new approach to shared governance both honors and diverges from Los
Medanos Colleges past efforts. The long history of participation
by all of the college constituencies is a foundational characteristic of
the college and this model. Los Medanos Colleges participatory governance
history, our immediate challenges and our future opportunities require
us to engage in effective and collaborative governance. This Shared Governance
Model gives the college a structure for creating its vision with
the guiding question: what does this issue, decision (etc.) mean
for us as a college?
