Back to University Action Projects
The driving force behind this project are the NSU values of collaboration and leadership, as articulated in Strategic Goal 3, “Build and reinforce an environment that values full inclusion, collaboration and shared leadership in the life of the university and in all external relationships.” The objective was to develop a policy paper that clearly lays out the meaning and intent of the strategic goal and our values as a community. A collegial system has, as its fundamental principle, the concept of good faith consultation among these colleagues prior to decision making as stipulated below. Colleagues are defined as all students, faculty and employees of the university.
The faculty council worked closely with the cabinet throughout the process. The following stakeholder organizations were consulted during the development phase of the working paper: NSGA, Staff Council, Faculty Council, the Chairs' Council and the Cabinet.
The first PUBLIC draft was circulated in December 2010 and has been reviewed and revised several times. It has been vetted through NSGA, Staff Council, Faculty Council, the Chairs' Council and the Cabinet (on multiple occasions).
