Boards Governing Two or More State Institutions of Higher Education.
Chambers, M. M.
The governing boards discussed in this paper are those that have full and sole authority to govern each and all the institutions under its jurisdiction. They generally consist of a group of laymen appointed by the governor and confirmed by the senate. There are 14 states in which such a board is statewide, in the sense that it governs all state colleges and universities in the state with the exception generally of the junior colleges and 2-year vocational schools. These states are: South Dakota, Florida, Iowa, Montana, Idaho, Kansas, North Dakota, Oregon, Georgia, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Arizona, Utah, and West Virginia. Fourteen other states: California, New York, Illinois, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, Vermont, Connecticut, Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Massachusetts have centralized subsystems within the state, each under a single governing board whose jurisdiction is confined to its own cluster of institutions. Since junior colleges in most states continue to be based on local taxing districts from which they derive part of their tax support, in addition to getting substantial aid funds from the state, they cannot be said to constitute a totally centralized subsystem.
