Rule 3358:5-1-20 | Delegation to the president.


The president is accountable to the full board. The board will establish the governing policies, delegating implementation of the policies and the development and implementation of procedures to the president.

(A) All board authority delegated to staff is delegated through the president, so that all authority and accountability of staff is considered to be the authority and accountability of the president.

(B) Ends policies direct the president to achieve certain results; executive limitations policies constrain the president to act within acceptable boundaries of prudence and ethics. With respect to ends and executive means, the president is authorized to establish all further procedures, make all decisions, take all actions, and develop all activities as long as they are consistent with the boards policies of the Ohio Revised Code.

(C) The board may change its policies, thereby shifting the boundary between board and presidential domains. By so doing, the board changes the latitude of choice given to the president. However, so long as any particular delegation is in place, the board and its members will respect and support the presidents choices. This does not prevent the board from obtaining information in the delegated areas, except individual client-identified data.

(D) Decisions or instructions of individual board members, officers, or committees are binding on the president, unless the board as a whole or the chairperson overrules the committee. In the case of board members or committees requesting information or assistance without board authorization, the president can refuse such requests that require in the presidents judgment a material amount of staff time or funds or are disruptive.

(E) The president, or his/her designee, is authorized to execute and deliver, in the name of, on behalf of, and as the act of the college, deeds, conveyances, notices, leases, checks, drafts, bills of exchange, warrants, promissory notes, bonds, debentures, contracts, and other papers and instruments in writing as may be authorized for execution and delivery by the board of trustees of the college. The authority conferred to the president or his/her designee shall remain in full force and effect until revoked or modified by the board of trustees in writing.

(F) The president, in addition to the vice president of advancement and the vice president of business affairs, is authorized to accept and receive (federal and other) grant awards and subsequent amendments on behalf of Clark state community college.
