Trusteeship opens up its September/October issue with Sara Goldrick-Rab's Hungry and Homeless: Tackling the Crisis of Basic Needs Insecurity—an under-discussed but pervasive and growing issue on college campuses. That piece is followed by one on the Evovling Roles for Presidential Spouses and Partners, written by Karen F. Kaler, Gwendolyn H. Freed, and Darwin D. Hendel, authors of a related study who share their findings and suggest ways for institutions to make the role more satisfying. Why Boards Shouldn't Be Spectators for Athletics is the result of a panel discussion at the National Conference on Trusteeship regarding the frequent scandals in college sports and the role of governance in overseeing intercollegiate athletics. How can institutional leaders keep mission, purpose, and integrity intact when a donor wants strings attached? Leslie D. Bram explores that topic with Philanthropy Unbound. Finally, we wrap up the issue with a story by Kim Krisberg, who explores Can Institutions Learn to Live with Campus Carry?
