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.
College Governance Structure
The College Governance Structure outlines the administrative structure and processes that drive decision-making at SCC.
The Executive Council acts as a clearinghouse that oversees the participatory decision-making process and includes the leaders of each constituency.
The four constituent groups of the college work together in committees and administrative units to further the work of the College for the benefit of students.
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.
