The May/June issue of Trusteeship magazine marks the end of the academic year with a cover feature on The Incalculable Benefits of Revitalizing Your Board. The Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, C.M., president of DePaul University, shares that institution’s experience of growth and academic rise and the role its board played in both. Adrianna Kezar and Daniel Maxey examine the issues surrounding employment of non-tenure-track faculty members in The Changing Academic Workforce. Fiduciary responsibilities take center stage in The Outsourced Chief Investment Officer: A Remedy for Your Endowment’s Fiduciary Fatigue? by David W. Bahlmann, Peter F. Campanella, and Thomas B. Heck. If your institution is facing a change in leadership, then The Last 100 Days of a Presidency: What Boards Need to Know and Do, by Sandra S. Johnson and Peter Eckel, will be required reading for the transition in and out. Finally, A Steep Price to Pay for Short-changing Education, from the pen of former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, addresses how short-changing education could lead to a decline in America’s quality of life, standards of living, and global influence.
