Still On The Sidelines

A Public Agenda report for the Lumina Foundation


A new report from Public Agenda adds an important new voice to the conversation about higher education reform. "Still on the Sidelines" explores the potential of trustees of colleges and universities to be significant change agents in higher education. While a small minority of trustees we talked to was passionate about broad, fundamental change, the majority see their role as a supportive one, helping the president lead their institution in challenging times without entertaining significant change in the status quo.
