Trustees & Professors: So Often at Odds, So Much Alike.
Chait, Richard P.
Trusteeship, v8 n6 p8-12 Nov-Dec 2000
Discusses how to encourage a more conciliatory approach to governance between college trustees and faculty members. Examines four similarities between trustees and professors that fuel mutual frustration: deadwood on boards and faculties, organizational conservatism, unsolicited advice, and inconsistency. Recommends regular, two-way communication and collaboration to alleviate this tension, noting that isolation perpetuates stereotypes, and interaction debunks them. (SM)
