Agendas and Minutes

Cosumnes River College relies upon a participatory governance model to steward institutional planning and decision-making. Participatory Governance (PG) encourages the collaborative participation and advice of those closest to an issue, project, or program to inform the college-wide perspective. Participatory Governance at CRC functions through constituency representation where faculty, professional staff, administrators, and students voice the needs of their respective roles, providing diverse perspectives to inform the whole.

Participatory Governance Decision-Making

The following outlines the participatory governance decision-making policies and practices, which are revised from the former Decision-making Handbook. Participatory Governance and institutional decision-making are guided by the college’s Vision, Mission and Values.
