Trusteeship, v7 n3 p24-27 May-Jun 1999
A survey investigated college faculty and administrator attitudes on issues related to institutional governance. Results offer trustees several strategies for fostering institutional change: build on the overlap in attitudes about governance; foster dialog about teaching, research, and governance among board, faculty, and administrators; improve communication through technology; and consider key elements of organizational culture (mission, traditions, values, and distinctive characteristics).
