LACC Shared Governance Model.
This document discusses Los Angeles City College's (LACC) (California) Shared Governance Model. In response to California Assembly Bill 1725, LACC set forth a plan to implement the statutory requirements of shared governance. Shared governance is a concept grounded in the idea that decision-making is a process that affects the entire campus community and therefore should be inclusive, cooperative, and mutually valued. LACC's model identifies specific areas in which students, faculty, and staff could be more involved in campus and college policy development and implementation. The model recognizes a need for a Shared Governance Council, which is charged with carrying out the mandates of shared governance. The model spells out the roles of the various campus constituencies, including faculty, classified staff, students, and administrators. The roles of each of these groups are defined in an organizational structure that supports decisions and recommendations. Within the structure, the budget committee and planning committee are charged with the authority to implement shared governance. The objective of this model--and of shared governance in general--is to ensure fairness and equity of decisions and actions in colleges. An appendix of supporting documents, including calendars, committee information, and an organizational flow chart are included. (ND)
