We are delighted to announce a new partnership with ACCT on the largest survey of community college trustees in over 25 years! Currently, over 300 trustees have responded to the survey, and ACCT will be making a push for broad participation starting in summer 2024. The results of this survey will be used to support trustee and community college leaders’ professional development and provide a national perspective on community college trustees. A preview of findings to-date is available here

About the Survey

  • The online survey protects your and your college’s anonymity and generally takes between 20 to 45 minutes to complete. No information can be traced to individual contributors. 

  • With permission, this survey replicates and expands upon the work which was published in the book which many of you have, titled Community College Trustees: Leading on Behalf of Their CommunitiesThis work remains the most comprehensive and influential examination of community college trustees and their beliefs, values, and decision-making processes. The current survey will provide valuable new information regarding the governance of community colleges.

  • Results from this survey will be aggregated by state or region, as well as the nation as a whole, and no individual trustee, college, or district will be identified in reporting.
