The responsibility for establishing College policies rests with the president of the College.
It is the intent of the College to follow policies and procedures established by the Chancellor, the Board of Trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (Minnesota State); applicable Federal, State, and Local Government Statutes; and the College. Policies established by the Chancellor or the Minnesota State College Board of Trustees shall have precedence over Local policies of the College.
Before implementing new policies or policy changes (except in an emergency situation), the president of the College will afford an opportunity, where applicable, for faculty, staff, and student leadership to review the policy or the change in policy. A formal presentation will be made to the Cabinet Team, Leadership Team and Faculty Shared Governance Council before implementing new policies or changes in policy. When required a formal presentation will also be made to the student leadership. All new and revised policies will be shared with the College Community using Saint Paul Broadcast System at the end of fall and spring semesters.
