Governance at Sacramento City College is a collaborative process involving representatives from all constituent groups who engage in open discussion and timely decision-making.
The goal of participatory decision-making is to provide a working environment which encourages the participation of the entire campus community – students, faculty, classified staff, and managers – in the process of making decisions that directly and indirectly affect them.
At Sacramento City College, four complementary components comprise the governance function:
- Administrative structure and process, whereby the operations of the college are implemented within established policies and procedures facilitated by the management staff.
- The constituent groups who assure representation and participation and speak for the interests of their members.
- A committee system wherein the various constituencies review and recommend policies, regulations, and processes of the College/District that affect all aspects of the College community.
- Input from any individual or group in the college on issues, concerns, or recommendations for improvement. The President is both a part of and stands outside of this structure and is ultimately responsible for its effectiveness.
