Manual for Developing Boards that are Useful to small christian colleges
workbook by David Agron, PhD.
Does your board help raise money, donate significantly from their own funds, volunteer for useful projects… or interfere with administrative duties, not show up for meetings, not have a variety of professional expertise, not know standards of good practice for boards or otherwise not meet the standards expected of a college or graduate school board? It is not uncommon for emerging schools to have boards that do not understand their role in building a strong institution.
This workbook is a training tool that the board works through. Because it has decision boxes, the board chooses from among appropriate options and personalizes the book into their own board handbook. The 100-page MS Word document (.doc) is downloaded so that decision boxes can be changed into text.
