Summary

The present study attempted to analyze the agendas and minutes of meetings of State boards responsible for community colleges to ascertain the problems they face and gain some knowledge of the items that occupy their time. Board members' opinions were obtained as well to determine their perceptions concerning the major problems facing community colleges and the level at which resolution to these problems should occur. The main objective of the inquiry was to determine what the State board members feel are the major problems in governance and to relate the time spent at meetings to these concerns. Board agendas and minutes and members' opinions were obtained via mail. Analysis of agendas and minutes reveals that State boards devote the most time to financial matters, facilities and curricula, in that order, followed by personnel, policy matters and students. Board members considered the three most pressing matters to be finances, curricula, and articulation-coordination. Other problem areas mentioned were facility improvement, sources for planning, and insufficient staff. Responses are tabulated in an appendix, and a copy of the questionnaire is provided. A short bibliography concludes the report. (KM)
