Trustee Quarterly, 1993
The four issues of "Trustee Quarterly" contained in this document focus on topics of current concern to community college trustees. The winter 1993 issue offers articles on the prospects for educational reform under the Clinton administration and the current Congress, strategies for obtaining needed resources from the state legislature, and the relationship between college Chief Executive Officers and Boards of Trustees. Articles in the spring 1993 issue address the importance of trustee commitment to winning passage of community college bond referenda and the role of community colleges in the global economy, citing the experiences of Southwestern College, in Chula Vista, California, with the North American Free Trade Agreement. The summer 1993 issue features articles on the role of college trustees in state-level lobbying and the historical roots of community colleges, tracing the history of higher education from its beginnings in the trade guilds of medieval Europe to contemporary institutions. Finally, the fall 1993 issue deals with the relationship between community colleges and the federal government and includes articles on the role of trustees in federal advocacy, ways to demonstrate the importance of community colleges to legislators, the success of Wake Technical College, in North Carolina, and Illinois Central with their congressional representatives, what to include in a legislator's visit to a community college, the Association of Community College Trustees legislative hotline network participation form, and Federal Student Financial Aid and Employee Educational Assistance/Job Training survey forms.
