Governance Coordinating Committee

Purpose: To ensure compliance with the procedures of the Governance Document, provide guidance to committee Chairs and other members of the college in administering shared governance, serve as a communication hub between and among Governance committees, and provide continuing evaluation of the current governance structure.  

The Governance Coordinating Committee was formed in December 2018 as the result of the work of the Governance Exploratory Committee, an ad hoc committee that was formed to evaluate CCRI's Governance process. 

Minutes and agendas from past meetings of the Governance Exploratory Committee and the Governance Coordinating Committee can be accessed by clicking the committee minutes button below.

What's New

Governance Exploratory Committee Established
Based on the responses from the governance survey in the spring of 2016, there is agreement that governance at CCRI could be improved. This committee would research and propose modifications to the current governance structure.
