Summary

Colleges and universities in the U.S. have historically been controlled by governing boards composed almost entirely of laymen; that is, composed almost entirely of individuals not involved in teaching or research. The purpose of a lay governing board is to represent the public interest, particularly with regard to expenditures. The theory is that since public funds are used to support the institution, either as tax monies or in the form of gifts from the general public, representatives of the public interest should be in a position to control these funds. In addition to representing the public interest, the second historic role of lay governing boards has been to raise funds to support the institution. Thus, another important criteria for board membership has been wealth or the ability to influence wealth. Recently, however, governing boards have been petitioned to broaden and democratize their memberships. College faculty and students feel they should have a voice in the governance of their institution, and in many cases they have been awarded board membership. (HS)
