The purpose of the Participatory Governance is to clarify for constituents the participatory governance process used within the District. The relationship of College committees to District committees is mapped, and the respective role and authority of the various governing bodies is defined. The participatory governance process is transparent and collaborative. The document outlines how employees are involved in the processes that lead to recommendations in their respective areas of responsibility and the accountability they have in decision making.
The Participatory Governance Handbook was approved by Chancellor's Consultation Council on April 29, 2022.
