July 3, 2012

The recent events at the University of Virginia indicate that more controversies over university governance in the US are likely to manifest in the future, according to a new report from Moody's Investors Service. "We expect governance and leadership clashes to increase in coming years as the sector’s ability to grow revenues dwindles, and its emphasis shifts to new operating efficiencies and cost containment," the report states.
