3.01 Shared Govenance Structure

Chapter Three: Instructional Affairs

Procedure Title: Academic Organization
Based On: Board Policies 1, 2, and 3
Procedure Number: 3.01
Date Adopted/Revised: October 31, 2001; November 21, 2006; May 15, 2007; June 19, 2010; June 16 2014
   

Purpose

The Shared Governance Structure model engages the system of committees and councils to identify and solve problems and to address institutional needs.

 

Fundamental Principles

 

  • Decisions are made by the appropriate person or body within the college after solicitation of, and taking due account of, input from those with relevant expertise or information, including all stakeholders (through their representative organizations).
  • Decisions and their rationale are shared with those who provided input through SouthArk’s system of Shared Governance.
  • Representatives who serve on recommending bodies ensure the accurate and timely flow of information between those they represent and the bodies on which they serve (in both directions).

Values to Guide Decision-Making

The committee structure is set to engage the faculty and other appropriate college personnel in finding solutions for the college. Given that everyone’s time is valuable, it is important for each committee to have meaningful issues to address and for a structure to exist that will ensure committee recommendations are heard and appropriately addressed. Committee and council meetings attendance is mandatory.

  • The educational needs of students are the highest priority within the college.
  • SouthArk is committed to collaborative decision-making and information-sharing in addressing issues and developing procedures.
  • Access to information within the college is essential to developing quality decisions.
  • Collaboration and involvement of employees will lead to better decisions and improved communication and morale.
  • Administrative functions must be designed to support educational quality, effectiveness, and efficiency. This entails collaborative development, measuring effectiveness, and regular review and refinement of college operating procedures.
  • SouthArk will tie in proposals to “best practices” or challenges its best practices in analyzing its operational performance.
  • SouthArk will support creativity and innovation in instruction.
  • Development and continual learning are essential to the achievement of quality service to students, the public, faculty, and staff.

 

Fundamental Structure of Shared Governance—Councils and Committees

Institutional decision making at SouthArk is supported by a system of Shared Governance composed of councils and committees that function as recommending bodies with respect to those matters that fall under their sphere of responsibility.

  • Councils are the primary vehicle to foster collaborative development or review of college procedures. A council is a recommending body that makes recommendations directly to the President and which has a sphere of responsibility of particularly broad scope or significance. SouthArk shall have the following four councils:
  • Academic Affairs Council
  • Administrative Affairs Council
  • Student Services Council
  • Planning Council
  • Committees are representative groups that focus on a specific area of college operations. These groups are intended to be standing, on-going, groups that identify issues, collect facts, and recommend solutions to the appropriate council. Every committee shall be assigned to an appropriate council to assure that recommendations are reviewed appropriately and forwarded ultimately to the President. SouthArk has three different types of committee:
  • Standing Committees, which are expected to meet ongoing needs of the college.
  • Ad Hoc Committees which represent groups appointed for a limited time period to review issues or concerns, and to make specific recommendations to a committee or council. After it has met its functions, an ad hoc committee will be disbanded.
  • Appointed Committees which are special committees whose members are appointed by the President.

Access to Information

All councils, standing committees, and ad hoc committees will have written function statement, membership list (including terms of appointments), and contact information posted.

Chairs of all committees and councils are encouraged to post provisional minutes of meetings within 10 days of the meeting date, and must post final, approved minutes within 10 days of the committee’s next meeting. Minutes will be posted on the SouthArk web site.

Functions and Purposes of Councils and Committees

The commitment to Shared Governance entails a commitment to the effective use of participatory governing councils and committees to draw upon the expertise of the members of the SouthArk community, and to represent the stakeholders within the SouthArk community, in the process of governing the college and guiding it towards fulfillment of its mission.

The role of each governing council or committee is to make recommendations to the appropriate council and, ultimately, to the Executive Cabinet/President of the college with respect to a designated sphere of responsibility. For a committee to be effective in its work, its sphere of responsibility must be clearly defined in a set of functions, the fulfillment of which constitutes the purpose of the committee. To properly regulate committees, they must be created with a clearly defined and well constituted purpose, they must be evaluated with respect to both the continuing significance of their purpose and their ability to fulfill that purpose, and they must be continued, modified, or dissolved on the basis of those evaluations. The following are Council Responsibilities

  • Assign issues needing to be addressed to the appropriate committee under that council.
  • Review, develop, and implement college-wide policies and procedures.
  • Hear committee recommendations, ask questions and either return work to committee for additional fine-tuning or move it on to the Executive Cabinet.
  • Make recommendations to Executive Cabinet.
  • Evaluate committee effectiveness and efficiency.

Creation of Committees

A new committee is created when it is determined that some sphere of responsibility needs the attention of a representative, recommending body and that there is no currently constituted body to which the responsibility appropriately can be assigned. Anyone in the college community can propose the creation of a committee in writing to the relevant council(s) or committee(s)) whether the committee should be formed and what its exact function and membership ought to be.

The proposal for creating a new committee must include the following information:

  • A general description of need for the committee including whether it will be a standing committee (permanent) or an ad hoc committee (temporary)
  • A specific description of the function(s) of the committee
  • Identification of the council to which the committee will forward its recommendations
  • A draft of a work plan for the first year
  • Suggested membership of the committee
    • Ex officio members
    • Slots designated for representation by categories
    • Representatives of job functions
    • Representatives of SouthArk constituencies

The following are committee chair responsibilities:

  • Lead meetings to address issues related to committee responsibilities.
  • Ensure preparation of committee minutes, reports, and recommendations that go to councils.
  • Ensure minutes are posted on the web within seven working days after the committee’s approval.
  • Report to the appropriate council and Executive Cabinet.
  • Serve on appropriate council.
  • Record attendance of committee members in the minutes.
  • Assign sub-committees (if needed and/or applicable).

The following are committee member responsibilities:

  • Sign in and attend entire committee meetings.
  • Participate in committee work by reviewing, developing, and implementing college-wide policies and procedures.
  • Serve on sub-committees (if applicable).

Academic Organization

  • The Vice President of Learning may request that a faculty member serve on an ad hoc committee in addition to a regular committee assignment.
  • Each committee will elect a recording secretary at the beginning of the academic year.
  • Meeting announcements and committee agendas must be published and distributed at least one week in advance.
  • Minutes must be published and distributed in a timely manner after each meeting.
  • All announcements, agendas and minutes for all meetings must be placed on file in the office of the Vice President of Learning and on the web site.

Committee Terms--Chairs and Membership

  • Standing committee chairs will serve two-year terms.
  • At their final spring faculty meeting, the faculty at large will elect committee chairs for those committees that must have faculty chairs. Nominations may be submitted to the responsible Vice President before the meeting, and/or made from the floor.
  • Chairs have no term limits but they must be reelected after each two year term.
  • In case the chair resigns the position during the year, the committee members will elect an interim chair to serve until the next year.
  • The chairs of the standing committees will be faculty members, with the exception of the following: Distance Learning; Recruitment, Retention, and Student Success; and the Lecture Series. Though faculty members could be chosen as chairs, these chairs do not have to be faculty members. If the college establishes a Developmental Studies committee, the Pre-college Committee could also have a non-faculty chair.
  • Unless otherwise designed in the APM, all committees should have at least one faculty representative from each of the three divisions. Those faculty representatives may volunteer or be nominated: the division will then vote to approve them.
  • Committee members should serve three-year terms to give continuity to committee membership. There is no limit to the number of terms they may serve. In case of midyear vacancies, the committee chairs can submit names for a division vote to replace those leaving.

Review, Modification, and Dissolution of Committees

To ensure that the efforts of each committee are worthwhile and contribute to the mission of the college, each committee will evaluate itself at the beginning of each year, report its evaluation to the council to which it makes recommendations, and be reviewed by that council. These evaluations will include a review of the functions of the committee, an assessment of whether the activities of the committee have been appropriate directed to its functions, and an assessment of whether the membership of the committee is appropriate for its functions.

Based on these evaluations, recommendations may be forwarded to the Councils for the modification or dissolution of a committee in the late spring. Councils will engage in a similar self-evaluation and make a report to the President/Executive Cabinet.

  • Modification of a committee’s function
  • Modification of a committee’s membership
  • Dissolution of a committee
