The PAC-12 Academic Leadership Coalition was launched in 2011 by the University of Colorado Boulder as a way for shared governance leaders at PAC-12 universities to collaborate. Shared governance leaders and staff from the PAC-12 universities have met on an annual to biannual basis, to discuss challenges and best practices related not only to shared governance, but also to faculty-student issues, academic freedom, campus climate, and myriad other issues facing higher education.
