Standard 4: Leadership and Governance

The institution's system of governance clearly defines the roles of institutional constituencies in policy development and decision-making. The governance structure includes an active governing body with sufficient autonomy to assure institutional integrity and to fulfill its responsiblities of policy and resource development, consistent with the mission of the institution. (Ref.: Middle States Commission on Higher Education. 2002. Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education.)
