Guidelines are presented for using the "Handbook of College and University Trusteeship," a compendium of information relating to trustee responsibilities. The following components of a comprehensive program of trustee development are covered: new trustee orientation, annual board workshops and retreats, regularly scheduled board meetings, and committee meetings. For each component, a statement of purpose and a list of objectives and suggestions are included. In addition to the four major text sections, discussion questions and a topical index are provided to cross-reference material included in the "Handbook." Additional contents include the following: an illustrative orientation program; an example of a 3-year series of annual workshops or retreats; 10 modules pertaining to board meetings; and model meeting agendas for committees (i.e., finance, buildings and grounds, development, nominations, academic affairs, and student affairs). The 10 modules cover topics such as: the growing tension among various higher education segments, keeping invested funds in line with educational needs, improving financial report formats and the reporting system, the role of colleges in preparing students for the 21st century, and the adequacy of the plant for present and future needs.
