What Governing Board Members Need To Know about AIDS. AGB Special Report.
Keeling, Richard P.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
The information about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) presented in this special report is designed to encourage the development of educational and preventive programs on the college campus. Chapter 1 defines many of the words and phrases used in discussions about AIDS; tells how the disease is and is not spread; and briefly discusses testing, treatment, and prevention. Chapter 2 discusses the impact the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has on higher education campuses, the risk factors that exist for students, education and service programs and their costs, and the kind of education needed to prevent HIV infection. Chapter 3 examines the various areas that should be of concern to governing boards in dealing with the AIDS issue including: (1) overseeing and monitoring the institution's policies and programs for students and employees; (2) managing the institution's resources and analyzing the potential impact of HIV infection; (3) evaluating the institution's role as leader, partner, and resource; and (4) determining positions on the social and ethical issues related to the disease. The fourth and final chapter presents guidelines and recommendations for HIV infection and AIDS prevention activities on campus. An appendix provides the American College Health Association's statement on institutional response to AIDS. (GLR)
