Biennial CEO Tenure and Retention Study. 2002 Update.
Community Coll. League of California, Sacramento.
This is the third review of data on the retention and tenure of California Community College (CCC) district CEOs (which includes chancellors and superintendent/presidents). The review indicates that (1) length of service levels are continuing to remain slightly higher (5.5 years) since their lows of 4.4 years in the initial study in 1995 and 1996; (2) the annual turnover rates were below the national average until 2001, when increasing numbers of CEOs began to retire and the average turnover increased greatly, due largely to retirement; the turnover rate for 2002 rose to 16.7%, from 15.35% in 2001; (3) the movement of CEOs out of state dropped close to zero, while in-migration of CEOs from outside California is rising; (4) retirement of a significant number of longtime CEOs has begun in earnest; (5) length of tenure for presidents in multi-campus districts is declining as these administrators are more frequently chosen to serve as chancellors and superintendents in their own or other districts; (6) the numbers and percentages of female CEOs are increasing at all levels (39.8% overall) and are well above national averages; and (7) the number and percentage of non-Anglo CEOs increased between 1984 and 1997, but has stagnated around the 1997 level of 40%.
