Shared Governance: Stronger Together

Shared governance is a stakeholder-driven system founded on principles of openness, transparency, and inclusiveness. It requires partners to take ownership and contribute to accountability-based decisions. This session walks through the steps taken by Madison College to create and foster a successful shared governance experience.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn five best practices in forming a collaborative, collegewide shared governance system that engages all stakeholders, is effective, and produces successful outcomes.
  • Take home examples of successful shared governance policies, plans, and directives.
