Self-Study Criteria for Governing Boards of Public Multicampus Higher Education Systems.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
Criteria for self-study for governing boards of public multicampus higher education systems 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. The criteria are as follows: system and institutional missions, board membership, board organization, basic educational policy, selection and assessment of executive officers, board relations with executive officers, board/faculty relations, board/student relations, financial resources and management, physical plant, court of final appeal, and accountability/autonomy. 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, knowledge of the institution, board and committee meetings, and fund-raising and public relations. 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.
