Policy III. C. - Monitoring Presidential Performance

Monitoring executive performance is synonymous with monitoring organizational performance with reference to Board policies regarding Ends and Executive Limitations. The Board will monitor performance to ensure policy compliance, including accomplishments of Ends. The Board may informally or formally evaluate the President’s performance based on monitoring data.

  1. The purpose of monitoring is to determine the degree to which Board policies are being fulfilled. Information not dealing with the degree to which Board policies are being fulfilled will not be considered. Monitoring will be done in a way that permits the Board to use most of its time creating the future rather than reviewing 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 by the President. Internal reports include:
      • Institutional data collection
      • Community surveys
      • Placement data
      • Assessment of student learning
      • Financial reports
      • Data on service to constituents
      • Goal achievement data
    2. EXTERNAL REPORTS—Disclosure of compliance information by an external auditor or other persons or entities external to the institution.  External reports include:                                  
      • Audit reports
      • Licensing examination results
      • Accreditation reports
      • Transfer data
    3. DIRECT BOARD INSPECTION—Discovery of compliance information by a Board member, a committee, or the Board as a whole.  This discovery is a Board-directed inspection of documents, activities, or circumstances to test policy compliance.
  3. Any policy can be monitored by any method at any time.  For regular monitoring, however, the Board will classify each Ends and each Executive Limitations policy according to frequency and method to be applied.
