Summary

Due to inertia within organizational cultures, relations between the boards and chief executive officers (CEO's) at community colleges tend to remain the same at each institution through time. The time has come to look at the separate roles of the CEO and trustee and then to decide how best at each institution to fashion a relationship between president and board that will enhance the institution's effectiveness for the good of the community and the students served. Many boards have not consciously defined these roles. Boards need to focus on results and, in particular, on the outside world and the effects of the college on that world. In doing so they move away from over-involvement in administration and toward responsibly representing both the community and the college. Each board must make its own policy decisions about organizational ends, executive limitations, board-executive relations, and board processes, based on the unique characteristics of its college and community. Once the board knows what its role is, it is possible to define the role of the president. Presidents have a serious obligation towards seeing to the education of their trustees, but trustees have the ultimate responsibility for good relations with their CEO's. (MAB)
