Significant Relationships Between Types of Trustee Boards and Their Decision Patterns in Public Four-Year Colleges and Universities.
Paltridge, James Gilbert; And Others
This research is an empirical investigation and analysis of corpus of trustees meeting activity in a sample of 21 public 4-year colleges and universities. The data input instruments were the board minutes for the year 1963-64 and 1971-72, bylaws, standing orders, procedural manuals and other documents as well as copies of all state legislation related to charters and board authority, biographical data on board members, and a highly detailed coding protocol. Findings are indicated for membership composition, total board action, board decision patterns, and policy levels of decisions. An 11-item bibliography and appendices with research material are included. (MJM)
