Dika, Sandra L; Janosik, Steven M.
Quality in Higher Education, v9 n3 p273-285 Nov 2003
Trustees play a primary role in ensuring quality and effectiveness in higher education in the United States. Research on selection, training and effectiveness of public higher education governing boards is limited. In this descriptive study, state higher education executive officers and state governors were surveyed to identify trends in the selection and training processes for public higher education trustees. The reported influences on selection of key players, selection criteria, personal attributes and other qualifications are presented. The reported existence and nature of orientation and training programmes are described and governors' perceptions of the successfulness of boards are presented. In conclusion, recommendations about key players, selection criteria, orientation opportunities, training opportunities and future research are made. (Contains 1 figure, 5 tables and 1 note.)
