PAC MOTIONS TO REVISE ITS PURPOSE STATEMENT TO REFLECT RESPONSIBILITY ASSOCIATED WITH RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE REPORT OF THE TFSG
PAC members voted in December 2018 to devote that month’s meeting to “Using PAC to Advance the Recommendations of the Shared Governance Task Force” and members of the TFSG were invited to return to PAC. The full TFSG was advised of this development and it was stressed that the presenters make very clear that PAC would be potentially responsible for building/maintaining the necessary infrastructure/recommendations to support shared governance, not to actually do the work of shared governance (in particular shared decision-making).
The TFSG members returned to PAC in December 2018 and led a presentation on the role PAC might play in advancing the recommendations of the Report. The presenters organized the 12 of 13 recommendations into three categories (collaboration, communication, and continuous learning) and engaged with PAC members in discussion of how PAC could be the vehicle that advances the recommendations.
Immediately following the presentation and discussion, the President’s Advisory Council advanced a motion with unanimous support to revise its purpose statement to reflect its role in advancing the recommendations of the Report of the TFSG.
