Help Bring College Values to Life

The College of Marin Participatory Governance System (PGS) ensures that faculty, staff, and students, through participation in governance committees, have the right to participate effectively in the District and College governance, and the opportunity to express their opinions at the camp's level and ensure that these opinions are given every reasonable consideration. The College of Marin PGS enhances transparency in decision-making.

Benefits of serving on a PGS Committee:

  • Engage with fellow COM team members; gain exposure to college process/system outside of your immediate home department; opportunity to contribute.
  • Meet people from outside your department; learn about other areas of campus life; have an impact on the College.
  • Learn about the way the College operates and the processes.
