About Internal Governance

Commitment to IG Renewal  

Beginning in 2002, various taskforces have documented the ways in which our IG system must be vigilantly attended to in order to align with the practical impact of institutional growth.  An internal governance structure that is inefficient interferes with the institution’s ability to act upon decisions and initiatives put forward by our Faculty, AP and Staff Senates. Our commitment to continuous renewal of IG reminds us of our founding vision:

Through a collaborative governance process, individuals and the University can harmonize their goals and set a course for mutual achievement. The willingness to listen to all ideas, to respect competing concerns, to evaluate the merits of many alternatives, and to communicate helps build consensus. 1995 IG Document (PDF).
