Volume 21,  Number 2   //    March/April 2013

This issue of Trusteeship poses an important question in its cover article: Fiduciary Behavior: What’s the Responsible Trustee to Do (and Not Do)? A panel of distinguished trustees—Gerhard Casper, Richard Chait, Yvonne R. Jackson, Martin Michaelson, David W. Miles, Martin D. Payson, and Henry Rosovsky—discusses basic good practice in this arena for boards and board members. In our next feature, legal scholar Robert M. O’Neil talks about Updating Board Bylaws—and Beyond. A contentious issue gets the point-counterpoint treatment from David G. Horner and David A. Williams in Does the Presidential Spouse Have a Role? Should the Role Be Compensated? And finally, the changing landscape in higher education is on everyone’s minds, so Rick Staisloff gives pointers on How to Review Your Business Model: Some Best Practices.
