Shared governance is a strong tradition in higher education. CWU exemplifies this in our core values by stating that our institution is "a place where people gather to live and to work. It must therefore be a place that enables people to grow and to prosper. In keeping with the academic values of shared governance and reasoned dialog, the university must be open, transparent, and empowering."
In support of this commitment to shared governance, the CWU information security program leverages input from governance groups, with the understanding that information security needs to be part of the University’s strategic planning process. These governance groups represent the wide range of constituents who are impacted by information security and privacy needs. This includes leaders from business units, academic colleges, technology support departments, and various compliance functions.
