Community college trustees are either elected or appointed to a Board of Trustees that is responsible for the leadership of their institution and its connection to the local community. Occasionally some Boards, whether appointed or elected, find themselves either as a full Board or a portion thereof trying to micromanage the institution’s operation. This paper is intended to describe the various reasons that micromanaging may occur and to offer suggestions regarding how an institution may limit or eliminate these micromanaging situations.
Thank you for your interest in the Advancing to the Presidency 2-day workshop. Becoming a college or university CEO requires a keen understanding of oneself and the search process and a solid game plan for transition into the position.
