The Two-Year College Trustee: National Issues and Perspectives.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
This booklet, intended for junior and community college trustees, contains three addresses given this year at a special conference for two-year college trustees, a paper based on a national survey of community college trustees, reaction to that paper, and a selected bibliography of articles, studies, and dissertations by lay governance of the two-year college sector. The addresses are: (1) "Who Decides?" by Edmund J. Gleazer, Jr., which stresses that the locus of decision making and power--historically found in the board of trustees and the president--may shift to administrative levels far removed from college and community; (2) "Statewide Planning and Local Autonomy" by James L. Wattenbarger, which reaffirms the trend toward State level coordination and control and proposes guidelines for differentiating State from local responsibilities; and (3) "The Private College in the 70's" by Wesley M. Westerberg, which focuses on important issues that confront the private two-year colleges and on specific contributions toward meeting the issues. (Author/KM)
