Shared Governance at Blackburn College

Blackburn College is committed to shared governance. Its faculty, staff, students, and leadership recognize that there are varying levels of responsibilities among the different College constituencies.

There must be delineation of levels of responsibilities where primary and final decision-making authority lies for different kinds of decisions. Shared governance at Blackburn is designed as a system of open communication aimed at aligning priorities, creating a culture of shared responsibilities for the welfare of the institution, and creating a system of checks and balances to ensure the institution stays mission-centered.
