Board Orientation [Infographic]

Board Orientation [Infographic]

The below infographic is taken from AGB's recent report, Shared Governance: Is OK Good Enough?

Shared governance runs on time, attention, and expertise—human resources. Though it is difficult to pinpoint why faculty and board members may not always understand each other’s work, insufficient education may play a role. Presidents responding to the survey were asked about new board member orientation.


Without education, neither board members nor faculty can be expected to fully understand each other’s role in shared governance. Importantly, a substantial number of survey respondents noted the need for greater role clarity among those involved in shared governance, something that can be addressed in orientation.
