Monroe Community College Shared Governance Policy
Shared governance is a foundational building block in assuring institutional effectiveness. Its primary goal is to assure MCC achieves its mission and goals in a manner that is effective, efficient, and beneficial to the college and our students. Each institutional constituency has separate but complementary roles and responsibilities, and shared governance engages these institutional constituencies to offer informed and timely input on college policy- and decision-making.
MCC has a strong commitment to shared governance in institutional practice that is grounded in the longstanding joint American Association of University Professors/American Council on Education/Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges “Statement on Government of Colleges and Universities” (1966, as updated 1990) and relevant SUNY and Faculty Council of Community College statements and policies.
