What Presidents Really Think About Their Boards, November/December 2013

Volume 21,  Number 6   //    November/December 2013

Trusteeship magazine winds down 2013 with a surprising look at What Presidents Really Think about their Boards, based on a survey by Peter D. Eckel. That’s followed by CHEA President Judith S. Eaton’s take on The Changing Role of Accreditation: Should It Matter to Governing Boards? Board members concerned about their institution’s investment in technology (and what board member isn’t?) will want to read Structuring Boards to Capitalize on Technology’s Power by Stephen G. Pelletier. If you’re trying to get a handle on what makes modern college kids tick, 5 Ways Today’s Students Are Radically Changing our Colleges, by Arthur Levin and Diane R. Dean, will make for enlightening reading. And finally, Alvin J. Schexnider tackles the question of Can Boards Ensure a Healthy Future for Historically Black Colleges? Happy holidays from the staff of Trusteeship magazine! We’ll see you again in the new year.
