Hearn, James C. – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2017
Public higher education is a major recipient of state funding and resources. As such, public colleges and universities directly respond to state needs for higher education and are required to provide transparency in decision-making, which is codified in state open-meeting and record laws. These laws, often termed "sunshine laws," present…

Dreier, Alexander E.; Michaelson, Martin – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2006
That college and university boards should have a policy on trustee conflict of interest is nearly universally accepted. Yet there is little consensus among institutions on just what the policy should be--and broad national consensus anytime soon is unlikely. Boards thus face a host of questions, many of which this document addresses, regarding…

Dickmeyer, Nathan – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2004
The questions "How much does it cost this institution to provide an education?" and "How much should students pay for that education?" are difficult to answer.

De Alva, Jorge Klor – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2004
Record budget cuts--more than 10 percent of state appropriations in some cases--and explosive enrollments have coincided with tough times for many state institutions.

Sevier, Robert A. – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2004
Discussions among college and university administrators on improving marketing efforts often revolve around questions about whether the marketing function should be centralized or decentralized.

Ikenberry, Stanley O. – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2004
There is cause for concern about the future of public higher education. The unease is driven in part by the recent cuts in state funding of most public universities and by the harsh reality that today's strains are merely a continuation of a three-decade-long trend driven by systemic tensions in state budgets. Arguably of greater moment is the…

Caires, Matthew R. – Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 2004
Most boards are insulated from misbehavior of college fraternities and sororities. This article shows how they could aid reforms by facilitating partnerships and developing a better understanding of today's Greek culture. To change the current culture, a renewed commitment is needed to develop working partnerships between the key constituencies…
