Full-time faculty members, students, and administrators contribute in the decision-making process at the college through participation in the governance process. Governance committees are established in accordance with the faculty/librarian contract. Governance committees are comprised of administrators assigned by the president, faculty members recommended by the chapter president of the faculty association, and student members recommended by the students. 

The attached document contains a listing of MassArt's governance committees for the 2017-2018 academic year, including faculty, administrator and student membership (as of Oct. 30, 2017).

Written charges to establish new or revised policies, curriculum, and academic reorganization must be addressed to the chairperson of the All University Committee and submitted through Alice Stanne in the Office of Academic Affairs.
