In this issue of Trusteeship, we examine the subject of degree completion from a number of angles. Our cover feature, by former AGB Chair Jim Geringer and Stan Jones, the president of Complete College America, asks (and answers) Why College? The Many Implications of Completion. José Luis Santos and Kati Haycock of The Education Trust take on Higher Education's Critical Role in Increasing Opportunity in America: What Boards Should Know and 10 Questions They Should Ask. AGB's Director of Policy Analysis and Public Sector Programs, Cristin Toutsi, presents an overview of a new AGB report in Board Responsibility for the Oversight of College Completion. Next, a group of experts—Jillian Kinzie, Alexander C. McCormick, and Robert M. Gonyea—walks readers through Using Student Engagement Results to Oversee Educational Quality. And finally, we address Governing Boards and Student Learning Outcomes Assessment in a piece written by three more higher education luminaries, Stanley Ikenberry, Peter Ewell, and George Kuh.
