Summary

Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) demonstrates compliance with this Comprehensive Standard by providing evidence that the CFCC Board of Trustees, in accordance with North Carolina legislation, has the responsibility for selecting and evaluating the president, who serves as the chief executive officer of the College.

Narrative

The Cape Fear Community College Board of Trustees is responsible for selecting the president as specified by law in the North Carolina General Statutes (NCGS), Chapter 115-20 (Powers and Duties of Trustees), subject to approval by the State Board of Community Colleges. In accordance with the North Carolina General Statutes the CFCC Board of Trustees’ By-Laws state: The Powers and duties of the Trustees include the following: (A) To elect a president or chief administrative officer of the College for such term and under such conditions as the Trustees may fix, subject to the approval of the State Board of Community Colleges (Duties of the Board pg 5).

Additionally, as stated in the CFCC Board of Trustees By-Laws, the CFCC Board of Trustees has the responsibility of evaluating the performance of the president (Powers and Duties of Trustees pg 6) based on his/her job description and a specific set of goals for the evaluation period developed jointly by the President and the Board of Trustees and reports the results of the evaluation to the State Board of Community Colleges. In 1995 the President/CEO Performance Evaluation policy was adopted by the CFCC Board of Trustees to guide this process (Board of Trustees Policy pg 12)

Evidence that the Board of Trustees evaluates the president and reports the results to NCCCS can be found in the Board of Trustees meeting minutes. An excerpt from the July 28, 2005 meeting of the Board reads “President’s Evaluation Results – Mr. Byrd, Chair of the Administrative and Personnel Committee, reported that the results of the evaluations were extremely favorable. This evaluation was reviewed with President McKeithan on July 25, 2005. A letter will be mailed to President Lancaster, NCCCS.” (Board Minutes pg 6)
