Governance Flow Chart
To accomplish the mission of Southern Adventist University, the Board, administration, faculty and others work interdependently under a shared-governance model. Shared governance is a shared process of decision-making under the delegated authority of the President. Under this model, the Board delegates responsibility for institutional operations to the President, who in turn delegates responsibility to other administrators and to the faculty. The extent of that delegation is defined and approved by the Board. The primary role of the faculty is to facilitate the academic success of our students and the University. The primary role of the administration is to nurture the institution’s mission-based ethos and direct the planning and management of University resources. These two roles are inextricably linked, and as such the partnership between faculty and administration, under the leadership of the President, must be both dynamic and well-defined in order to succeed.
