THE ROGUE TRUSTEE NOW AVAILABLE
  The Rogue TrusteeAcknowledging the Elephant in the Room
 
With this book, O'Banion breaks a long-held silence on the topic of rogue trustees and the damage these board members can cause the colleges and communities they are elected or appointed to serve. After analyzing data collected through interviews with community college presidents who have encountered rogue trustees, O'Banion reports on the behavior of rogue trustees, several possible motivations for that behavior, and the damage caused by rogue trustees. He also provides strategies to repair the damage and concludes with a summary of general perceptions about the issue of rogue trustees. Click here to order.
