From the Back Cover:

America’s biggest cities are pulse points for the entirecountry. Already weakened by decades of decline, their unevenrecovery from the recent Great Recession has resulted in thefurther concentration of prosperity in a few and hardship for allthe rest. Their citizens similarly reflect widening disparitybetween the wealthiest and poorest, threatening an endangeredmiddle class that used to be the proudest measure of our economicand democratic ideals.

Urban community colleges are undergoing rapid, multidimensionalchanges in response to the new conditions and demands everywhere.The challenge for all, regardless of size or location, is toreinvent themselves so they can better meet the particular needs oftheir respective communities. This national
higher-education mandate is vital to democracy itself, especiallygiven the multiracial nature of metropolitan areas, wherechallenges and opportunities have always been most pronounced.

The future is as unpredictable as the events that brought us tothis critical juncture. Spurred by outside pressure and support aswell as deep commitment from within, urban colleges are vigorouslyexploring new strategies for sustainability and success. In thisvolume, some of the most prominent practitioners
examine every major aspect of the change-engagement process,including the role of governing boards, workforce development,community partnerships, and redesign of outdated business andfinance models.
