[Trustees: Working Together--Making a Difference.] Report on the Annual Convention (5th, Portland, Oregon, September 26-28, 1974).
Association of Community Coll. Trustees, Annandale, VA.
Representatives from thirty states and the District of Columbia participated in the Fifth Annual Conference of the Association of Community College Trustees. Written and compiled by Journalism students at Portland Community College, this report presents highlights of the conference addresses and workshops, and interviews with participants, in a magazine format. Among topics discussed, the role of trustees in collective bargaining, the need for community colleges to become servants of their communities, financial and educational accountability, student tuition, and the problems of faculty tenure emerge as the most significant. Four major resolutions adopted by the conference participants were (1) to keep tuition at the lowest possible level, (2) to oppose federal or state government imposition of collective bargaining laws on the public sector of higher education, (3) to keep authority and control of salaries at the local board level, and (4) to eliminate faculty tenure.
