“The work of the Board and the chief executive officer has never been more critical in higher education than it is today. As we face this unparalleled disruption, we are all searching for the right “hands-on” tools that can moor us in times of challenge, point us in the right direction, and add wind to our sails as we reposition. This book rightly assumes that the success of institutions will be most determined by the Board’s ability to govern effectively. This is not an esoteric work where you have to be an insider to understand its recommendations; rather, it is a practical guide to how we should be thinking about governance with ready made tools that can be used almost immediately.

It should be required reading for all boards of trustees and executives at colleges and universities.”
