Campus Issues & Responses

Participatory Decision-Making

The campus issues process is used for major issues that have broad, college-wide implications. A campus-wide issue or concern can be identified by an individual, a department, a constituent group, or a committee. The Campus Issue Form is submitted to the Dean of Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness (PRIE) for distribution to the appropriate standing committee or council. The Dean of PRIE is the process coordinator and serves as a member of the SCC Executive Council.

For more details, view/print the Campus Issue Process document.
