Narrative:

 

Vernon College has a clearly defined and published organizational structure that delineates responsibility for the administration of policies. At the direction of the President, Vernon College maintains an organizational chart, which defines the structure of administrative oversight within each area of the College according to Board policies: Vernon College Board Policy Manual, Section BG Local (Administrative Organization Plan). The organizational chart is available in the Employee Handbook as well as on the College website. The College also maintains job descriptions in the Human Resources Office for all College employees outlining their duties and responsibilities.

 

The College President is the Chief Executive Officer of the institution and has ultimate responsibility for the administration and implementation of policies at Vernon College. As depicted in the organizational structure, his leadership team is comprised of the Dean of Instructional Services, Dean of Administrative Services, Dean of Student Services/Athletic Director, and the Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid/Registrar. The Director of Institutional Research and the Director of Institutional Advancement both report directly to the President.

 

The President and those administrative officers reporting directly to him constitute the President's Council, the leadership for College operations. This group meets weekly to consider major decisions concerning the administration of College policies and to assure appropriate supervision over the implementation of these decisions.

The institution is further organized into committees for the efficient and effective operation of the institution on a daily basis. The committee structure is outlined in the Vernon College Standing Committees List, published and updated annually.
