Governance Structure

Stockton’s governance system contains the standard elements of collegiate governance: 

Board of Trustees

Administrative councils (Deans Council)

Faculty Senate

Student Senate 

Stockton University Foundation

In addition, Stockton includes several unions which “collaborate” on a number of issues related to working conditions.

The faculty union is:

Communications Workers of America (CWA):

International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE):

The New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association, Inc.

The New Jersey Superior Officers Association (NJSOA)

The New Jersey Law Enforcement Supervisors Association (NJLESA)


We have considered the effectiveness of the units as independent deliberative bodies and as units connected to one another.
