Essential Elements in Assessing Institutional Presidents

An effective and fair assessment of an institution’s president begins with clarity about the personal characteristics the board was looking for when it sought the current president, and the description of the assignment that was posted when he or she was engaged. In addition, the board needs an evaluation instrument to gather information from key constituents and across the institution, says Paul Dovre, chair of the board of directors at Luther Seminary. Dovre, who is also a governance mentor for InTrust, a nonprofit membership organization that supports North American theological school boards and administrators, succinctly explains how those elements interact to produce a productive evaluation of an institution's president, in a short video interview available on the InTrust website.
