Volume 22,  Number 2   //    March/April 2014

In this issue of Trusteeship, AGB President Rick Legon examines why some boards reach their full potential and others do not in The 10 Habits of Highly Effective Boards. The crucial elements for success in today’s educational climate are articulated by Terrence MacTaggart and Robert A. Sevier in Surviving & Thriving in Tumultuous Times. Terry Franke addresses leadership planning and transition in Needed: A New Style of Leader for the New Era. Steven C. Bahls, author of the new AGB Press publication Shared Governance in Times of Change: A Practical Guide for Universities and Colleges shares some of the finer points of that book in How to Make Shared Governance Work: Some Best Practices.
