“In a shared governance system, faculty, professional staff, administration, governing boards, and students participate in the development of policies and in decision making that affects the institution… By coming together with different constituent groups who have different opinions on how an institution should be governed, the shared governance process can become the desired way to help institutions implement changes.”

Purchase College is the proud recipient of the 2016-2017 SUNY Campus Shared Governance Award in recognition of our strong commitment, and ongoing efforts to improve, Shared Governance at Purchase College, SUNY.
