Institutions in Crisis

Volume 27,  Number 2   //    March/April 2019

Trusteeship enters spring with a piece on Addressing Crises, a distillation of a webinar AGB convened following the recent admissions scandals and other crises that have engulfed higher education. Peter Smith follows, answering the question of How Should Boards Respond to Disruption? Next, Creating Inclusive Board Cultures by Bethami A. Dobkin encourages boards to embrace diversity and cultivate an inclusive group culture. As he prepares for retirement, AGB’s president and chief executive officer Richard D. Legon shares Some Reflections. Kathleen B. Rogers addresses The Redeployment Challenge, a look at how to respond to declining and shifting enrollment trends. Finally, AGB is pleased to honor six boards with the AGB John W. Nason Award for Board Leadership in Recognizing Exceptional Boards.
