Community College CEO/Chief Development Officer Survey Report

Do community college presidents believe they're getting adequate support from chief fundraisers? Do fundraisers believe that their CEOs understand their roles in fundraising success?

In summer 2012, CASE conducted parallel surveys of community college CEOs and chief development officers to gather their perspectives on their roles and relationship. Findings were presented at the inaugural 2012 CASE Conference for Community College Advancement and are reflected in the presentation below.

The surveys can still be used by CEOs and chief development officers as a basis for conversation about ways they can work together most effectively to raise private support for their institution. For example, the president and chief development officer might each download and take the appropriate survey below, compare their results to the broader findings, identify areas of mutual agreement, explore opportunities for improvement and grow understanding of each other’s role.
