Report on the Proceedings of the Annual Conference for Pennsylvania Community College Trustees (4th, Harrisburg, June 19-20, 1970).
Murphy, James P., Ed.
Conference efforts were directed toward developing new insights into the trustee's role as it relates to major program areas of an institution. The following areas were discussed and the importance of trustees being informed about them stressed: continuing education, career programs, transfer programs, accreditation, and professional negotiations. Continuing education and career or occupational programs are seen as services to the community; trustees are needed to interpret them to the community. Trustees should understand the place of transfer programs in the overall scheme of a college, and assist in creating an atmosphere in which problems or conflicts can best be solved. In the discussion on accreditation, frankness in communication among trustees, faculty, and administration is stressed. The trustee's function in, preparation for, and reaction to collective professional bargaining are discussed. (CA)
