College Governance


This Power Point material was presented in Johannesburg, South Africa as part of the Africa Institute for Evangelical Leaders. The Institute was sponsored by the Wesleyan Church, Africa Region.

Presidents, Academic Deans, and other members of the schools’ leadership teams of various theological Colleges in Africa participated in the conference.

The material highlights six “best practices” in college governance.  The discussion following the presentation regarding the “best practices” narrowed the focus to:

1.  the two practices most needed to be addressed by the school boards with whom the participants work,

2. why these two, and      

3. what governance benefits will addressing these issues bring to their boards.
