Participatory Governance (PG) encourages the collaborative participation and advice of those closest to an issue, project, or program to inform the college-wide perspective. Participatory Governance at SCC functions through constituency representation where faculty, professional staff, administrators, and students voice the needs of their respective roles, providing diverse perspectives to inform the whole.
Committees generally live in three groups: Constituent, Standing, and Non-Standing Committees. The Executive Council is a stand-alone committee.
The shared governance Standing Committees bring together members of the College from all constituencies and components of the administrative structure to represent various interests and levels of expertise.
