Welcome to Saint Joseph's University new governance tracking and communication platform!

 

Below is a summary of how the site works as well as our integration with SJU's G-Suite:

gov.sju.edu

  • The central location of all governance related materials (formerly in various BlackBoard sites)
  • Each governing body will have a page on the site that shows the description of group, group bylaws, the membership of who has access to the group, and a designated area for documents and resources of the group (Google Drive folders)
    • The access has been established based upon the guidelines in the faculty handbook and can be managed
  • In the near future, members of the University community will be able to submit mandates to go through the governance system in a uniform manner
    • Submitter will be able to track where their mandate is
    • Bodies will be notified when the mandate comes to them
    • Mandates can be tagged with meeting dates of discussion
    • Attach reports on mandates from the various bodies
  • Mandates will be searchable and filtered by title, year of submission, status, and keywords

Google Drive

  • Files have been migrated from Blackboard to folders in Google drive
    • Meeting minutes
    • Agendas
  • These folders are owned by the chair of the respective committees
  • The access has been established based upon the guidelines in the faculty handbook and can be managed
  • For easy retrieval, faculty can add a “Star” the folder(s)
