Census of Governing Boards of Four-Year Colleges and Universities. Final Report.
Anderson, Charles J.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
The purpose of this investigation was to obtain the names and addresses of members of governing boards of all 4-year colleges and universities in the US in order to provide data on the distribution of trustees by sex, by state of institutions served, and by region of residence. The list was then to be recorded to serve as a universe for future studies of trustees and institutional governance. Data were obtained for 93% of the 1,203 boards governing 1,423 4-year institutions. The membership lists contained 25,584 names of which approximatley 90% were men. The distribution of board members by state of institution governed and by region of residence varied widely; the largest number live in the mideast and the smallest in the Rocky Mountain area. This distribution generally reflects student enrollment and population patterns. The names and addresses of 24,900 board members are currently on file at the national headquarters of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, Washington DC. Information gathered during the study and references are included. (JS)
