Would New Board Structures Improve College Governance? A Forum to Examine Canadian Experience.
Konrad, Abram G.; And Others
Institutional governance in Canada is legislatively apportioned to the individual provinces. Each of the provincial legislatures has established government departments to direct the operation of post secondary education. Boards of Trustees, a well-established tradition in the United States, do not exist uniformly for all types of post secondary institutions in Canada. Brief overviews are given of the governance structures in British Columbia, Alberta, and Quebec. Anne Stevenson, chairperson of Cariboo College Council in Kamloops, addresses selected governance issues from the vantage point of a lay board member. Stevenson reviews school district representation; who is allowed to vote; principal, faculty, and student participation; budget and educational priorities; and labor relations. Gary Dohla, President of the Mount Royal College Students Association in Calgary, discusses his view of institutional representation in college governance, with an emphasis on the positive input provided by faculty and students. A president's perspective on community college governance is presented by George Wootton of Douglas College in New Westminster. He attempts to point out both the positive and negative aspects of faculty and student involvement in governance. (Author/AH)
