    A. Purposes.

    1. The purposes of a periodic self-evaluation are to enable the board to strengthen its performance, identify and reach consensus on its goals, ensure that the board has a clear grasp of its responsibilities, strengthen relationships among board members and especially with the president, and clarify expectations among board members and with the president.

At least eight hours of meeting time shall be allotted, preferably split between two consecutive days. Ordinarily, only the regents and the president shall participate.

A summary of all board member responses to the survey, without attribution, shall be provided to all board members before the workshop. These results shall be the basis for discussion.
