The In Trust Center is committed to sharing learnings with its members. Through the In Trust Center’s current initiatives and over three decades of governance work, a collection of videos has been compiled to share with the greater membership.
Delores Brisbon says that for shared governance to succeed, an institution needs to do the following: (1) Be clear about which groups have decision-making responsibility. (2) Map out major issues, identifying who has primary responsibility for each. (3) Identify all stakeholders for the various issues, and determine how each group will be consulted. (4) Allow enough time to address issues and build consensus. (5) Review the governance process and be willing to adapt the governance process to your specific needs.
