MSCHE Standard 4: Leadership and Governance
The institution’s system of governance clearly defines the roles of institutional constituencies in policy development and decision-making. The governance structure includes an active governing body with sufficient autonomy to assure institutional integrity and to fulfill its responsibilities of policy and resource development, consistent with the mission of the institution.
Analysis of Evidences
The Job Descriptions for both Corporation Members and members of the Board of Trustees contain an organizational chart that clearly defines the roles of the Corporation, Board, and Administration of the College. Both documents clearly outline the responsibilities, relationships and privileges of corporation and board members, including their autonomy in the policy development and decision-making processes. Each of these two bodies has an Assessment Plan in place. However, a review of the two assessment plans indicates the need for updating and revisions. In addition, since the last Board Evaluation was conducted in 2006, another evaluation has been planned for the 2012-2013 academic year.
