About the University Assembly

PennWest University is committed to a shared governance model that fosters open communication among all university stakeholders – students, faculty, staff and administrators – and promotes their active participation in policy development and decision making.

At the heart of this model is the University Assembly. With the exception of areas limited by collective bargaining agreement(s), the assembly will consider and make recommendations regarding all university policies pertaining to academic affairs; student affairs; residence life; facilities; institutional resources; enrollment management; finances and budgets; libraries; athletics; and diversity, equity and inclusion.
