The Board of Trustees and the Chancellor recognize that the development and operation of highest quality educational programs, for benefit of students and the community, is a common responsibility, and that relationships must be established and maintained that are based upon this common aim.
As one means of establishing such relationships, the Board and the Chancellor recognize the importance of shared governance and the role of the collegesí Faculty Senates, both to their home college and the System as a whole. Faculty Senate Presidents attend all regular meetings of the Board and have a standing place on the agenda to make reports and announcements. The Faculty Senate Presidents will designate one Faculty Senate President spokesperson on a rotating basis to make reports and announcements.
The Faculty Senate Presidents will also meet regularly with the Chancellor to discuss issues of importance to faculty.
