Citrus College is committed to shared and participatory governance principles, designed to guide wise decision-making supporting the college's mission and strategic goals. This governance philosophy is based upon five pillars of shared decision-making, all of which must be present for effective governance. These pillars are:

Shared Vision
Shared Engagement
Shared Respect
Shared Information
Shared Risk

It is fundamental to the health of the college that our decision-making bodies operate in a culture of shared vision, engagement, mutual respect, and information sharing. These conditions will allow us to move into the future with confidence and to make wise decisions that will benefit our students and our community.

Persons interested in learning more about governance at Citrus College are invited to review the Organization and Governance Handbook for more detailed information.
