Governance councils are primarily constituency-based and work on policy, procedures, plans, or projects that have an impact on the District. These include, but are not limited to, policies, procedures, strategic and master plans, and program review processes. They then delegate work to operational committees to implement those policies, procedures, plans, and processes.
Members of councils represent specific constituencies and, as such, serve as a liaison to bring information from constituents into the dialogue and from the council back to their constituents. Governance groups at Palomar College consist of the following:

- Faculty Senate
- Institutional Effectiveness, Planning, and Fiscal Stewardship Council
