2. COLLEGE GOVERNANCE
2.1 Statement on Governance
The policies codified in this Trustees' Handbook for Managers have been derived from policies and procedures adopted by the Muhlenberg College Board of Trustees and/or approved by the President. The Handbook is intended to serve as a useful source of information for managers relating to professional responsibilities, personnel policies, procedures and privileges. The term "manager" as used in this Handbook refers to all salaried exempt personnel except teaching faculty.
Final authority within the corporation of Muhlenberg College to establish, modify, suspend, or discontinue personnel policies and procedures is vested in the Board of Trustees as guided by the Charter and bylaws of the College.
