Endowments allow colleges and universities, like other public and charitable organizations, to fund a portion of their work continuously, generation after generation.

Fans or Fiduciaries? Boards and Intercollegiate Athletics

When it comes to intercollegiate athletics, board members should consider the totality of the student experience—from success on the playing fields to success in the classroom. Sometimes, the scales get tipped, and when problems emerge the board can find itself caught up in scandal. Boards need to understand their larger role and accept their accountability.

Why does college cost so much?

Having the right information is crucial when responding to questions about why college costs so much. But does it? Most students don't pay the full "sticker price" once financial aid is taken into consideration. Listen to Sandy Baum, economist and senior fellow at the Urban Institute, discuss the costs and benefits of a college degree–and why you never hear a news story about an unemployed high-school graduate.
