Palomar College Governance
The participatory governance structure of Palomar College is designed to address the needs of Palomar’s diverse student body through active participation and engagement by administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The participatory governance structure has evolved over time to address changes in legislation, accreditation recommendations, and Palomar College itself. The Governance Structure and Participation Handbook and governance structure were developed using critical, yet collegial, self-reflection by representatives of all college constituent groups who were united by the vision of establishing structures, processes, and communication channels that will support the mission of Palomar College. College processes, including those described in this handbook, will be periodically reviewed and revised as part of the institutional cycle.
