Faculty/Staff Shared Governance: A Proposed Process (Report)
The TTUHSC School of Nursing (SON) has experienced tremendous growth over the past 14 years in three strategic areas – student enrollment, geographic locations, and program offerings. The SON currently has students and program offerings in multiple locations in central and west Texas. The SON leadership team is committed to continued growth to meet the need for a highly educated and well‐trained nursing workforce. This high level of organizational complexity has created challenges in communication and engagement of the faculty and staff especially related to committee work. Additionally, the belief that faculty and staff thrive in an organization where core values are agreed upon and a meaningful structure for communication to recommend direction to the Dean exists.
