Shared Governance & Committees
The focus of our mission is student learning. As indicated in our values, the college needs the active participation of the entire campus community to effectively accomplish its mission. Our philosophy is that diverse perspectives make us stronger and lead to better decisions.
Gavilan College’s organizational functioning is based on our mission, institutional values, strategic direction, and on the development of effective relationships and teamwork between administrators, faculty, staff, and students. This belief system fosters a climate in which participation and input is routinely provided to and accepted by those responsible for making decisions.
Note:The Shared Governance Handbook is currently being reviewed by the Academic Senate but is not officially approved yet.
