The Trustee in North Carolina.
Davis, J. A.
This paper discusses responses to a survey paralleling a national study of trustees in North Carolina. Conducted in 1968, the survey was aimed at 1600 trustees; some 800 responded. The remarks deal principally with findings of importance to the trustees themselves, and answered 4 general questions: (1) who are North Carolina's trustees; (2) how prepared are they for the trusteeship; (3) what are their views toward constituents of their campuses; and (4) how do they operate. The first question covers characteristics such as age, race, education, religion, occupation, and political views. The second used indicators of preparedness such as familiarity with relevant reading material and participation in campus activities. The third documented attitudes toward students, faculty and administrators. How trustees operate was explored by selecting issues and asking respondents whether they should decide, review and advise on, or approve and confirm them. (JS)
