Shared Governance at Rhodes State College is defined as an inclusive process, which engages the College community with the purpose of influencing decision-making on matters of planning, policy, and programs.  Shared Governance is centered around seven (7) guiding principles which serve to define a mutually beneficial and sustainable relationship among faculty, students, staff, College leadership, and the Board of Trustees. The guiding principles are: informed and broad representation; transparency and clarity; open information flow and clear lines of communication to College stakeholders; diverse involvement; mutual respect and trust; accountability; and deliberations which advance the interest of the College.
