NMC Governance

It is our shared belief that in order to foster a healthy environment where all views are considered, openly debated and given the opportunity for adoption, a culture of empowerment must permeate the campus community.

This empowerment is achieved through the College’s commitment to shared governance, which engenders substantive contributions from students, staff, faculty, and community members to the College’s strategic direction.

Ultimately, shared governance is the vehicle by which the College carries out its vision and mission. It allows the College to draw on collective intelligence”'in a spirit of collaboration, open and honest communication, and mutual trust”'so that better decisions are made.

The Institutional Excellence Guide, which can be downloaded below, provides clarity to the shared governance structure that involves all constituents at the Northern Marianas College. Further, the Guide outlines the processes the College has instituted for planning,assessment, and budgeting.

All college students, faculty, and staff are highly encouraged to participate and lend their expertise in the shared governance process by serving on a College committee, workgroup, or council.
