5. B. 3 The institution enables the involvement of its administration, faculty, staff, and students in setting academic requirements, policy, and processes through effective structures for contribution and collaborative effort.
The inclusive process of involving multiple stakeholders from the educational, business and philanthropic communities in the original planning, founding and development of Miller College through its initial years of operation established a pattern of shared governance that guides the College in its continued strategic planning to this very day. As described in 5.B.1, the day-to-day operations of Miller College are governed by an inclusive network of committees that engage all internal constituencies in collaboration on policy development and implementation to the benefit of all the College’s stakeholders. Inclusiveness and collaboration are ensured by by-laws that provide for representation from academics, Student Services and the President’s Office on all standing and ad-hoc committees. A comprehensive accounting of each committee and its membership may be found in the Miller College Policy Manual. As noted in 5.B.1, meetings are scheduled in such a manner that information flows seamlessly from one committee to another to allow for maximum input from all areas of College operations. Students are formally involved in this process through representation in student organizations.
