Governance and Intercollegiate Athletics: Boards Must Know the Score, November/December 2012

Volume 20,  Number 6   //    November/December 2012

Before you ring out the old year, be sure to check out the November/December issue of Trusteeship, which is packed with useful information. In our cover feature, John T. Casteen and Richard D. Legon tackle Governance and Intercollegiate Athletics: Boards Must Know the Score. Moving from there to another age-old issue, Cathy A. Trower addresses Academic Tenure and the Traditional Assumptions Boards Should Question. Terrence MacTaggart asks What Confidence Should Boards Give No-Confidence Votes? We close out the year with two pieces about reaching beyond your boundaries—literally—into new territories: John Sexton’s Going Big Globally in a World Grown Small and Why Your College Can’t Avoid Internationalization, by Larry D. Lauer.

From all of us here at Trusteeship, we thank you for another great year and wish you happy holidays and good things in 2013!
