The advantages and disadvantages of formal versus informal evaluations are examined, and actual procedures that have been used at colleges are described. The procedures vary widely, depending on the nature of the governing board, the type and complexity of the institution, and the climate of the campus. Discussions of presidential self-assessment and assessment by other constituencies are followed by a summary chapter which provides a concise overview of the issue in the form of 11 highlights of the assessment process. Six necessary ingredients for conducting a proper assessment are also described. addressed. Appendices include evaluation guidelines for a large private university, a small church-related college, and three state institutions; and letters, questionnaires, and rating scales. (SW)

Culture also drives decisions about what role the chief executive has in board meetings, where the board invests the lion's share of its time and what issures are considered sacred cows
