Self-Study Criteria for Governing Boards of Independent Colleges and Universities. Revised.
Paltridge, James Gilbert; And Others
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
Criteria for self-study by private college governing boards are presented. For each criterion, questions are presented, along with three response options: "yes,""no," and "do not know or can not judge." A response option for judging the board's overall performance on each criterion is also included. In addition, brief introductory comments for each criterion are presented. The criteria are as follows: institutional mission and educational policy, institutional planning, physical plant, financial support and management, board membership, board organization, board/chief executive relations, board/faculty relations, board/student relations, and court of appeal. A checklist designed to help board members assess the extent to which they have absorbed their roles and institutions is also presented, which covers the trustee's background and traits, knowlege of the institution, board and committee meetings, fund-raising and public relations, and other concerns. Finally, the following considerations are addressed by open-ended questions: issues that have most occupied the board's time and attention during the past year; one or two successes of the board; and shortcomings of the board's organization or performance.
