Shared Governance

The campus culture thrives in an environment of collaboration, transparency, and purposeful action. The practice of shared governance facilitates these goals by providing a space for conversations regarding policies, procedures, and the work of campuswide committees and taskforces. Shared governance also ensures that decisions made reflect the perspectives, expertise, and best interests of all stakeholders.

Each constituency group at John A. Logan College is invited to participate on the Shared Governance Council (SGC) to play a role in reviewing submissions made through the Employee Comment Form and the Shared Governance Council Request Form. Collectively, SGC will determine a course of action for the submission.

SGC will also serve an advisory role to President’s Cabinet and as a repository for campuswide committees and taskforces as a means to prevent redundancy among work completed and actions taken at the College.

  • Facilitate transparency, communication, and accountability on campus
  • Act as the liaison for all constituency groups on campus
  • Prepare formal recommendations to President’s Cabinet to influence decision-making
  • Facilitate action on feedback received from President’s Cabinet
  • Maintain a repository of committee and taskforce work that affects the institution’s direction and manage requests for the creation of new committees and taskforces
  • Report regularly to the Board of Trustees regarding outcomes achieved through SGC intervention.
