College Governance

The Governance structure of the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) is based on a shared governance model. As practiced at CCRI, shared governance is a set of processes and procedures through which college faculty, staff, and administrators collaborate in making recommendations about issues of college-wide importance in the following areas:  Academic, Business, Facilities, Institutional Planning, Student Affairs, and Technology.
