Accounting Year in Review. It's been a busy year for the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). FASB continues to work on changes to its not-for-profit reporting model, and hopes to release a document for public comment in the first quarter of 2015. GASB is continuing to research the effectiveness of its reporting model, deliberate other post-employment benefits, and seek comments on fiduciary activities and leases. At the same time, NACUBO's staff and its Accounting Principles Council members have been involved in advocacy to help the two boards better understand higher education institutions.

Deeply ingrained in genetics, human behavior and individual traits play a major role in dictating leadership approaches and styles. Fisher has identified four broad styles of thinking and behaviors associated with specific brain systems; and her work also focuses on understanding how individuals of different temperaments are predisposed to thinking, working, buying, innovating, following, and leading.

The article includes advice from college and university business officers who have successfully made the switch from other industries, one CBO's primer on where to focus those first 100 days, and counsel from consultants about the value of a solid onboarding process.

Employer Expectations for Higher Education Outcomes. With increased pressures to improve completion rates and employment prospects for students, institutions are working smarter to pave the way.
