Monitoring President Performance

Board Policy 202

Monitoring executive performance is synonymous with monitoring organizational performance against Board policies on Ends and on Executive Limitations. The Board will monitor performance in a manner as to have systematic assurance of policy compliance, including accomplishment of Ends.

  1. The purpose of monitoring is simply to determine the degree to which Board policies are being fulfilled. Information which does not do this will not be considered to be monitoring. Monitoring will be done in a way to permit the Board to use most of its time to create the future rather than review the past.
  2. A given policy may be monitored in one or more of three ways:
    1. Internal reports: Disclosure of compliance information to the Board from the President. These reports may include institutional data collection, community surveys, placement data, assessment of student learning, etc.
    2. External reports: Disclosure of compliance information by an external auditor or other persons or entities external to the Institution.
    3. Direct Board inspection: Discovery of compliance information by a Board member, a committee or the Board as a whole. This is an inspection of documents, activities or circumstances directed by the Board which allows a test of policy compliance.
  3. Policies can be monitored by any method at any time, except each Ends and Executive Limitations policy will be monitored by the Board at regularly scheduled times pursuant to an agreement method.
