Governing bodies of higher education institutions: Roles and responsibilities The Effectiveness of Governing Bodies by Michael F. Kelleher Introduction Up to a few decades ago the governing bodies of universities in most systems would have been rather shadowy groups whose precise function would not have been altogether clear to the other.

The general aim of the research was to explore the perceptions of stakeholders with regard to the financia l functions of the school gov erning bodies. In order to a ttain the g eneral a im of the study, the specific aims were: • to determine the functions of the school governing body.

Probably the easiest starting point is to recognise management and governance are different; if something is a management function by definition, it is not a governance function.

Henri Fayol defined the five functions of management in his book Administration Industrielle et Generale. issues of board collaboration would seem to fit into the general literature on free-riding and the teams problem (see, e.g., Holmstrom, ).

The teams-problem example serves to illustrate a problem that can arise in applying “off-the-shelf” theory to boards. It is well known that, as a member’s. Many states have laws governing the functions of the board of directors of nonprofits and the conduct of board members. For instance, a nonprofit board must oversee the nonprofit organization's operations and make sure that its staff and volunteers act legally and ethically.

The board of directors, including the general manager or CEO (chief executive officer), has very defined roles and responsibilities within the business organization. Essentially it is the role of the board of directors to hire the CEO or general manager of the business and assess the overall direction and strategy of the business.

Another response suggested dividing into two separate boards, one called the governance board, with appropriate governance responsibilities, and the other called the administrative board. Specific job descriptions would be developed for each to ensure that the two boards knew their limits and areas of responsibility.

It further sought to establish the extent to which primary school heads were conversant with their duties and responsibilities and whether they viewed themselves as either school administrators or school managers or both. The board member survey also asked about presidents’ and chief academic officers’ support for shared governance more generally.

(See Table 2.) Board members broadly agreed that top administrators show support for shared governance. However, a larger portion of board members at independent institutions than at public institutions.

The purpose of a quorum is two-fold—to make sure that board decisions are made by majority vote and to prevent a tie-vote of the board members.

A common requirement for a board quorum is for 2/3 of board members to be present to conduct official business, though the bylaws may state any number.
