Regarding the attitude, 39.7 of the board had a positive view about the activities and the necessity of the existence of such centers. Another 40.2 had a rather positive attitude. On the other hand, about the rate of their satisfaction, 13.03 were satisfied with their activities, and 60 were fairly pleased.In deductive analysis of the data, results indicated no strong correlation between the awareness and satisfaction scores of the board with their academic rank.
