In Support of Civil Education
In April 2019, AGB released a new advisory statement, “Reclaiming Higher Education’s Leadership in Support of Civil Education.” In this episode of Trusteeship Radio, Jonathan Alger, president of James Madison University, and Kristin Hodge-Clark, former AGB vice president for best practice and innovation and a trustee at the College of Saint Benedict, share examples of how civil education works on their campuses, in the classroom and the board room.
Endowments allow colleges and universities, like other public and charitable organizations, to fund a portion of their work continuously, generation after generation. The ways in which these funds have been solicited from donors, applied to expenses, and stewarded over time are ultimately unique to each institution, and public misconceptions have proliferated on each of these points.

Zimpher and LeBlanc bring very different yet entirely complementary perspectives from their long, deep experience with innovation. Thought-provoking, inspiring, practical, hits all the right notes. Integration, moderation, and production values are exceptional. I will use and recommend this in many settings.
