Effects of State Coordination upon Two Year College Boards of Trustees.
Day, C. William; May, Ronald
A questionnaire was sent to the 7 state agency directors, 61 college presidents, and 61 college board chairmen of public two-year colleges that had established statewide agencies since 1968, and had institutional boards in existence prior to the state agency, to determine their perceptions of the changes in the powers and duties of college boards as a result of state coordination. Responses were received from 6 state directors, 43 college presidents, and 25 board chairmen. The survey results indicated that: (1) in the majority of states reporting, the state-level agencies regulated only public two-year colleges; (2) the basis of authority for the state and institutional boards existed in statutory provisions in the majority of cases; (3) institutional boards governed the local colleges; (4) the size of the state and institutional boards varied from state to state; (5) the majority of the institutional boards were elected by the public; a sizable number of institutional boards were filled, however, by gubernatorial appointment; (6) the length of terms of institutional board members varied from 3 to 7 years; (7) in the majority, there was no limit on the number of consecutive terms that a board of trustee member could serve; and (8) only geographic considerations were made to assure representatives in the institutional board of trustees in most cases.
