The governing board of South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) is the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Board of Supervisors. According to the Bylaws of the Board of Supervisors (1), “Chancellors for each community college …[are] appointed by the Board upon recommendation of the President and hold office at the pleasure of the Board.” The LCTCS System annually conducts the evaluation of the Chancellor in accordance with LCTCS policy. The job description of the Chancellor (2) includes:
S/He is responsible to the Board, through the President, for the effective execution of all state laws, all resolutions, policies, rules and regulations adopted by the Board for the administration and operation of the System and the governance of all its campuses. The Chancellor/CEO shall administer the college for which s/he is appointed and shall exercise complete executive authority, subject to the direction and control of the President and the Board. The Chancellor’s/CEO’s discretionary power shall be broad enough to allow him/her to meet his/her extensive responsibilities. In performance of his/her duties and responsibilities, the Chancellors/CEOs shall have direct access to the President. S/He shall be the official conduit of communication between the President and all personnel on his/her campus. The Chancellor/CEO shall be responsible to the President for the budgets of his/her campus. This shall include the functions of review and recommendation on the budgets of all divisions of the campus and preparation of a consolidated budget, as well as execution of the budget as approved by the President and the Board.
Chancellors are evaluated annually. SLCC’s Chancellor was last evaluated (4) in July 2010. (Note to Committee Members: SLCC will present the Chancellor’s evaluation to the On-Site Team). The President reports evaluation findings to the Board of Supervisors. As reported in the LCTCS Board of Supervisors September 2010 Minutes, (5) Dr. May, the LCTCS President, recommended:
…the employment contracts of each chancellor discussed today be extended an additional one year, with all terms and conditions to remain the same as are presently applicable.
The board voted to approve this recommendation.
