Policies & Procedures FAQ

What is governance?

Governance is the act of governing. It relates to decisions that define expectations, grant power, or verify performance. It consists of either a separate process or part of management or leadership processes. See the full Wikipedia definition.

What is shared governance?

LCCC defines "shared governance" as an organizational belief system of self-government. This system begets accompanying policies, procedures, and practices under which all major institutional constituencies contribute to, and participate in, the major decisions determining the direction and operation of the institution. Decisions that arise from a process of shared governance result in shared commitment and a cycle of institutional self-evaluation through which the College collectively directs its efforts and resources to continuous, meaningful improvement.
