Participatory Governance

The Reedley College participatory governance process is collaborative and inclusive. It provides opportunity for involvement of faculty, staff, administration, and students in the planning and operation of the College.

The governance process embraces the Reedley College mission, philosophy, and core values, which includes:

  1. Supporting individual and constituent viewpoints in collaborative decision-making;
  2. Promoting mutual respect and trust through open communication and actions;
  3. Fostering integrity as the foundation for all we do.

The Board of Trustees is the final authority for governance at Reedley College and delegates authority to the Chancellor and the College President who in turn solicit and receive input through the participatory governance decision-making process.

Organization and Structure:

To fully implement the participatory governance regulations in a spirit of collegiality, Reedley College has developed a structure which includes a College Council, standing committees, subcommittees, ad hoc committees. Our constituent representative organizations are each afforded the opportunity to appoint representatives to each as deemed appropriate and relevant. “Appropriate and relevant” shall be determined by an action of the College Council or by statute.
