9781269905541: ASHE Reader on Community Colleges (4th Edition)

In an increasingly global and interconnected world, it has become important to provide community college students with a global education. Community colleges have been active in internationalizing their curricula and in providing students experiences with other cultures. While community colleges are an American invention, several other countries have taken note of the significant effect that community colleges in the U.S. have had on both individual opportunity and economic development. Many have developed or are developing institutions based upon the American model. The ASHE Reader on Community Colleges is a significant resource for those who study American higher education, especially community colleges, but it is also a wonderful text for educators and leaders of higher education institutions. The articles and research reports provide an important picture of the development of community colleges, the missions that guide them, the challenges they face, the students they serve, and the faculty and leaders who serve them. As the articles point out, not everyone agrees about the issues and how they should be addressed. All of us in higher education are still learning, and the Reader is an important resource for us as we continue to study and learn how to be more effective. Section One: Historical Foundations, Theoretical Perspectives, & Sociological Approaches; Section Two: Divergent Goals and Institutional Diversity Among Two-Year Institutions; Section Three: Organization, Administrative Leadership, and Finance; Section Four: The Instructional Core — Community College Faculty; Section Five: Diverse Students at Two-Year Institutions of Higher Learning; Section Six: Career-Technical and Workforce Education; Section Seven: Community College Transfer; Section Eight: Remediation and Developmental Education; Section Nine: Globalization, Technology, and Policy Issues Facing 21st Century Community Colleges
