As universities and colleges find themselves at the center of the national debate about gun rights and public safety, Kim Krisberg offers an in-depth examination of Campus Carry Laws and the Challenges for Leadership. Helping students with learning and attention issues is the subject of Beacon College President George J. Hagerty’s feature story, How to Approach Learning Differences. Anthony Cortese, David Dinerman, and Georges Dyer explain The Intentionally Designed Endowment, a financial strategy that focuses on sustainable investments. This issue wraps up with a look at The Wild World of Esports, based on the personal experience of Columbia College President Scott Dalrymple. Happy reading!
