Policy Governance Description

The Board of Trustees has adopted the Carver Policy Governance ® model. Under this model, a clear line is drawn between governance and operations. The Board has responsibility for the establishment of the ends to be achieved and overall responsibility for the organization. The Board delegates to the President the achievement of the Board-established ends within the limitations established by the Board. The Board operates according to a set of policies that it adopts. Included in the Board policies is a series of “Executive Limitations” which establish boundaries for the President’s management of the University College.
