Stress Testing: How Can You Ensure Your Institution’s Fiscal Health?, September/October 2015

Volume 23,  Number 5   //    September/October 2015

Trusteeship magazine heads into fall with an important cover piece by Stephen G. Pelletier that is right on the money for these troubled economic times: Stress Testing: How Can You Ensure Your Institution’s Fiscal Health? We wade into the contest between sports and the arts with an opinion piece by John Gerdy on Artists, Athletes, and Governing Boards: Who Plays and Who Wins? The final three features touch on aspects of international education, starting with The Import and Export of American Higher Ed—and Its Governance by Jill Derby and Joseph Burke. Former Goucher College President Sanford J. Ungar shares that institution’s story in Taking a Chance on Change: Universal Study Abroad at a Small Liberal-Arts College. We wrap up with The Board’s View Beyond the U.S.: Tales from Two Institutions, an examination of the Lebanese American Unibversity in Beirut and Centro de Enseñanza Técnica y Superior (CETYS) in Mexico.
