Welcome to the first issue of Carroll Capital, a bi-monthly collection of news and notes that focuses on themes, issues, and people that are important to faculty and students at Boston College's Carroll School of Management. From Fulton Hall in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, Carroll Capital is distributed to an audience of individuals as varied as is the world of readers with a thoughtful interest in issues of management and management education. You have been selected to receive this newsletter because you occupy, in our view, a place of importance in that world, whether through the academy, business, or your ties to Boston College. I hope that you will find pleasure and knowledge on these pages and that you will take time, on occasion, to join us in the dialogue we intend to foster.
