What is governance?

Governance at Cosumnes River College is a collaborative process involving representatives from all constituent groups who engage in open discussion and timely decision-making.

How Governance Works at CRC

Those who will be impacted, and those who hold responsibility, are invited into a process in which decisions are made through shared leadership that actively seeks consensus on the best way forward with respect to any given issue or opportunity. By seeking general agreement (consensus) rather than majority opinion, the College is able to maximize institutional effectiveness while fostering a continuing culture of participatory governance and shared leadership. The purpose of governance is to achieve valued outputs which are strategies, solutions, and/or recommendations that advance CRC in the direction of maximizing institutional effectiveness. Valued outputs are achieved through participation and dialogue.

All official governance documents can be accessed via BoardDocs.
