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.
