Self-Study Criteria for Governing Boards of Theological Schools.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
Criteria for self-study by theological school governing boards are presented. For each criterion, questions are presented, along with three response options: "yes,""no," and "do not know or can not judge." A response option for judging the board's overall performance on each criterion is also included. In addition, brief introductory comments for each criterion are presented. The criterion are as follows: institutional mission and educational policy, institutional planning, physical plant, financial management, financial support, board membership, board organization, board/chief executive relations, board/faculty relations, board/student relations, relations with the church/denomination, and multi-tiered boards. A checklist designed to help board members assess the extent to which they have absorbed their roles and institutions is also presented, which covers the trustee's background and traits, knowlege of the institution, board and committee meetings, fund-raising and public relations, board functions and procedures, and board membership and leadership. Finally, considerations addressed by open-ended questions include: issues that have most occupied the board's time and attention during the past year; successes and shortcomings of the board; and the relationship between the church authority and the school.
