Implementing Governance for a New Era: An Action Plan for Higher Education Trustees
American Council of Trustees and Alumni
"Implementing Governance for a New Era" is an action plan to assist college and university trustees in reforming higher education. Delivered to more than 16,000 college and university trustees in November 2014, the plan provides details on how trustees properly represent the public by ensuring students receive a quality education at a reasonable price. The action plan examines the key questions all trustees must ask in order to gauge institutional effectiveness. It covers topics including the disinvitation of controversial speakers, grade inflation, core requirements, the role of athletic programs, faculty course loads, and assessing presidential performance. The wallet-sized "Getting the Data: 10 Questions Trustees Should Ask" provides trustees with questions designed to ensure informed decision-making.
